Beet Greens

Storage: Store beet greens separately in a plastic bag. They will keep up to one week

Preparation: Fill a large bowl or salad spinner with cold water, add beet greens, and swish them around to remove sand and dirt. Wait a minute to let the sediment settle to the bottom, then pull out the greens, dump the water, and repeat until basil is clean. Dry thoroughly by rolling with towels.

Taste: Slightly sweet, very tender, mineral-rich

Nutritional Benefits: These greens are a veritable powerhouse vegetable! Beet greens are loaded with vitamin C for infection control and cancer prevention, as well as vitamin A for vision. They’re also a wonderful source of fiber.
