Eat beet tops before any sign of wilting for maximum flavor. In most cases, the smaller the beet, the sweeter the beet, and the larger the beet, the more ‘earthy’ the beet will taste. Vinegar pairs well with beets, making pickled beets a great addition to many meals. Walnut oil pairs very well with warm beets. To minimize the beet color from excessive bleeding leave the stem plug in place and skin on while cooking. Many health enthuseists juice beets for health benefits.
