How to eat

If you are going to boil or roast the beets, you do not have to peel them. It is advisable to brush off the sand first. You boil or roast the beet with the skin, which can be easily peeled off afterwards. If you would like to eat the beet raw, you can first peel it with a vegetable peeler and cut the ends off the beet.
