Winter’s Featured Produce: Beets

North Coast Co-op

For the past 24 years, Wild Rose Farm in Blue Lake has provided the Co-op with these three varieties of beets. If you already love to cook with these earthy root vegetables, or you’re new to the idea of their bright-colored flesh, beets continue to show an increasing number of health benefits and, at the Co-op, travel less than 20 miles to get to the store and into your belly.  

 

Gold
Sweeter, not as earthy. Smaller in size.

 

Red
Earthy. Paired best with bright, 
sweet, and fresh flavors.

 

Chioggia
Especially sweet. Requires less cooking time.

 

 

How to choose beets:
Firm with smooth skin and dark leafy tops.
