You may have read in my previous posts that I used to hate beets. Gold beets changed my mind. Here are the basics of gold beets.
This variety of beet is milder in taste than the better known red beets. Many people who find the taste of red beets too strong enjoy Golden beets. To cook first rinse and trim the stem about 1/2” above the bulb. Wrap each bulb with tin foil before putting into the oven or on the grill. Bake at 400 degrees until tender when pierced with a fork. Serve warm or chilled. These are great over salad. You can also use them in place of red beets in any recipe. You can find more beet recipes here on our blog by clicking the beet category on the right side menu.
Finally, beets are great for coloring eggs yellow in the spring. You can cook up some red beets to make pink eggs, gold beets for yellow and mixed for orange.
