Tips for Storing Beets
The beet roots can be stored in a plastic bag wrapped tightly around the beets. Make sure to squeeze out as much air as possible. Removing the tops from beets will greatly extend their storage life. Leave about 2 inches of stem to prevent the beets from “bleeding”.
Don’t wash beets before storing them.
Store the beet roots in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
Beet tops should also be stored in the refrigerator. Store using a perforated plastic bag.
The beet tops can be kept for about 4 days.
