How to choose golden beets

mrsgreer Sep 21, 2010 04:30 PM

Some of the golden beets I got were green inside. They still tasted ok raw. How do you pick beets which will be all yellow, for presentation?
Never had problem w/ red beets

    Were they big? I've had problems with the bigger beets. So you want to serve them raw, not cooked?

      They are about 2 inches. I made soup, And the final color was like the inside of a corn kernel. Not a lovely yellow like the picture of the recipe from Epicurious.
