This is what our vegetable professional from Gut Wulfsdorf says:

"The beetroot comes from our warehouse in the spring. I particularly like the typically sweet, earthy taste of it.

In the kitchen I use the vegetables in a variety of ways, either as vitamin-rich raw vegetables in a salad, cooked or especially as a beetroot tart, baked with a spicy cheese-cream-egg mixture.

The delicious vegetables are also very healthy. Beetroot contains many valuable ingredients, for example iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamins C, A and K. "
