Can you freeze red beets?

You sure can freeze beets. Use uniformly deep red, young beets. Wash and sort according to size. Trim the tops, but leave 1/2 inch of the stems and tap root. This will prevent bleeding of color during cooking. Cook in boiling water until tender, for small beets 25 to 30 minutes; for medium beets 45 to 50 minutes. Cool promptly in cold water. Peel, remove stem and tap root, and cut into slices or cubes. Package, leaving 1/2 inch of head space. Seal and freeze. (06/27/2009)

When I freeze beets, I always dice them and put them into freezer bags. I squeeze out all the air, and they keep very well. I am sure they would work equally well sliced. (06/28/2009)
