Chioggia beets are a sweet Italian heirloom variety. Their burgundy exterior hides their claim to fame -- a stunning fuchsia- and white-striped interior
Very good source of vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber, beta carotene and folic acid.
How to cook :Chiogga beets can be used just like any other type of beet, and bonus -- they don’t bleed color onto every surface in sight. If you want to keep those pretty stripes intact, enjoy your chiogga beets raw in a salad, or deep-fried as chips -- though cooking will slightly fade their pattern. For a less dramatic (but just as tasty) presentation, try them roasted, steamed, braised, sautéed, pickled, or the hands-down best way to cook beets.
