Benefits of Beetroot
Slightly limp greens can be restored to freshness if stored in the refrigerator in water. However, if its too late, you can simply cut them off.Wash beets gently under cool running water, taking care not to tear the skin. It is this tough outer layer that helps keep most of the beetroots pigments inside the vegetable. The leaves can be steamed lightly to retain their nutritional quality. When boiling beetroot, leave the beets with their root ends and one inch of stem attached and dont peel them until after cooking since beet juice can stain your skin.
