A beet is a vibrantly colored root vegetable that is earthy and sweet.
Fair warning- their deep red juices will stain! Beet greens are edible and quite nutritious (the actual "beet" is the root of the beet plant). Beets can be enjoyed any number of ways, from raw to roasted- we do recommend that you peel them regardless since the skin tends to be rough and unappetizing. Beets are a good source of Vitamins A, B, and C, and fiber.
