Beets, Chioggia, 2 lb
Gold and chioggia beets are a bit milder than red beets, having all of the sweetness and less of the "wow this also tastes like dirt!" quality. That quality is actually an identified compound, and it turns some people off of beets. I like all the colors...but if you are a beet skeptic, try this gorgeous candy-striped (pink and white!) chioggia!
