There's nothing like fresh beetroot when it's in season. Here are some tips to help you select and store your beets.
When selecting, choose firm, smooth-skinned beetroot with a deep red colour and no signs of spots or bruises, avoid beets that are very large or elongated, as they may be fibrous. The leaves aren't an indication of the quality; however, if you're planning to use them, they should be tender and a healthy green colour. Fresh beetroot that still have their roots and their leaves will keep for 2-4 weeks in the refrigerator or in a cool humid place. While raw beetroot can't be frozen because they become soft during thawing, cooked beetroot freezes without any problem.
