Beets are at their best

Many cooks avoid beets because their red-purple pigment can be hard to work with and that “earthy” flavor can be a bit much. Since they are available now in pre-peeled, pre-cooked packages, they are super-easy to use, especially in salads. What other vegetable can you think of that has only 52 to 55 calories in a whole cup? One cup of cooked beets also offers more than 3 grams of fiber and a good helping of folate, magnesium and potassium. The small ones are generally more tender than large ones. If you are cooking them from raw and fresh, buy them with their greens attached, but remove all except one inch of the stems when you get them home, and store in the refrigerator. When ready to use, wash gently so as not to damage the thin skin and make them “bleed” color or nutrients.
