Facts: Candy Beetroot really makes a fantastic addition to any salad, either slice thinly or grate to really see the unique stripe. Remember though once cooked it looses the stripe and turns a uniform pink colour.
Storage: Put in a paper bag and store in the fridge crisper drawer
Preparation and cooking: Beetroot is eaten boiled either as a cooked vegetable, or cold as a salad after cooking and adding oil and vinegar, or raw and shredded, either alone or combined with any salad vegetable. It is also fantasic cut in half, or quarters if big, drizzled with olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted in the oven - yum.
