Beets, Chiogga BUNCHED

$4.99 $4.99 1st time price!

Nutritious and Beautiful

The Chioggia beet, also known as the candy cane or candy stripe beet, hails from Northern Italy and became popular in the 19th century. It’s most notable for its striking deep pink and white spirals, and the beet adds a beautiful pop of color to salads and soups.
Though the candy stripe beet can be prepared much like any other beet, the Chioggia has an especially sweet flavor—and it doesn’t ‘bleed’ as much as regular beets, meaning you don’t have to worry about bright red beet juice staining your fingers and clothes.

The roots will keep with their tops removed for 2-3 weeks when stored in the refrigerator. The leaves will only last 1-2 days once removed from the roots and stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.

Chioggia beets are popularly used raw to preserve the bright stripes in the flesh and can be sliced into salads or garnished on top of soups. Coating the slices in lemon juice or vinegar will also help maintain the coloring. Chioggia beets can also be utilized in cooked applications, but the flesh will fade into a pale pink or white hue. When cooked, Chioggia beets can be roasted to develop a sweet, earthy, and caramelized flavor or steamed for a tender, soft consistency. They can also be thinly sliced and baked into chips, blended into sauces or dips such as hummus, sliced into sticks and wrapped into fresh spring rolls, or pickled for extended use. In addition to savory applications, Chioggia beets are a popular replacement in baked goods to add color and texture to items such as brownies and cakes. It is important to note that the skin should be peeled before consumption and is easiest to remove after it has been cooked. The leaves of Chioggia beets are also edible and can be used in recipes as spinach or swiss chard substitute. Chioggia beets pair well with nuts such as pepitas, walnuts, and almonds, cheeses such as feta and goat, herbs such as cilantro, basil, and parsley, carrots, apples, ginger, scallions, and fennel.

Chioggia beets are an excellent source of manganese, folate, vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, and fiber.
