Add a great splash of colour to your plate with these beautiful golden beets. Their appearance is not their only virtue; they’re also sweeter in flavour than the standard purple roots. Whether you’re after the health benefits of beet juice, want to perk up a tray of roasted veg or just need something quick and easy to grate into a salad, this golden root will see you right.

Cooking

These beautiful roots are spectacular raw, grated in salads. Or showcase their colour by slicing them thin and dressing in lemon juice and olive oil (think raw beetroot carpaccio). For an even milder taste, you can also boil or roast them in the usual way. And don’t keep all your beets for the main course – their earthy sweetness is a fine addition to brownies and cakes.

Storage

To keep beetroot at its best, chop the stalks and leaves off as soon as you can – otherwise they’ll draw moisture away from the beetroot itself. Store unwashed in the fridge or in a cool veg rack. Fresh from our farm, so give them a wash before using.

Country of origin

Grown in the United Kingdom.
