These dark red gems are chalked full of nutritional value and while they may not taste good to all, they are healthy enough that you should find a way to get past the taste so you can add them to your daily diet intake. They are mostly abundant in the wintertime because that is the normal growing season for beets. Beets can be consumed raw, fermented, cooked, or juiced.

    Why EatBeets?

    5 minutes


    Chop each beet into small cubes.

    3 minutes

    Dissolve Salt

    Pour the salt into the water and stir until completely dissolved.

    2 minutes

    Add Beets to Jars

    Evenly divide the beets into each jar.

    2 minutes

    Add Liquid

    Add the water/salt mixture over the beet cubes inside the jar. Make sure that all beets are completely under the water.

    1 minute

    Add a lid

    Place a lid on each of the jars.


    Set Jars in dark room

    Place the jars in a dark room where the temperature can be maintained between 60 ° and 70°
    Note: Fermentation can take anywhere from three to ten days, depending on the temperature of your kitchen and the final taste of the product to suit your taste buds. After the third day, start checking the taste of the beet to see if it has fermented enough and then continue to step eight.



    Now that the beets are done with the fermentation process, you can now store the jars inside the refrigerator or the root cellar where it is mostly cool.
