Baby Chioggia Beets


1 bunch

Chioggia beets have fuschia and white stripes which are revealed when sliced open. In fact, their beautiful stripes have given them the common name of candy cane beets. This is also an apt name as these beets are also sweeter and milder than red beets, and so require less cooking. Preserve the unique pattern by baking them into chips; pair with cheeses such as goat cheese, gorgonzola or aged pecorino; peel and thinly slice into a veggie wrap or burrito; stew in a vegetable ragout with a bit of lemon to try and preserve their colors. Store in fridge for up to 10 days.
