(The American mode of selling whole cooked beets in plastic shrinky-dinks is properly mental, though)

Have never seen this in the USA but it's standard in French supermarkets, and fabulous. Would you rather have to boil them first to prepare them? Obviously we can buy raw beets as well.

raw grated beets + grated apples + grated cabbage = THE BEST COLESLAW.
with a bonus of red fingertips for the next 24+ hours.

oh, will try that tout de suite!
i prefer fresh cooked they taste much better, imho, and i take exception to extra plastic packaging. but cooked, store-bought beets are a pretty good product and a nice convenience in a pinch. xpost

Euler: tins, the alternate container I cited, hold the juice safely inside for as much of the contents as you don’t use at first. Flappy plastic with scissor-cuts in will spill it throughout the fridge, if it didn’t get all over the counter already.

oh I see, it's a problem with plastic over metal, ok, I can see that. we just use the whole thing every time but we're a family of five.
