I'm really glad that I'm giving away a copy of Tamar Ansh's Pesach Anything's Possible, because the information she has graciously shared with us, below is so useful! I never knew that one can freeze beets! Here's what Tamar has to say about this:
"Beets are one of those foods that for literally generations, has been associated with Pesach. Beets keep well for longer periods of time, are full of healthy vitamins, and have so many varied uses. Instead of just average borscht or chrein, why not try something new this year? Another great beet tip that I've discovered: you can freeze cooked beets and when they are defrosted, they are just as good as the day they were cooked. This is a GREAT time saver. I buy a lot of beets at one time, and then peel, check and boil them all on the same day. After they are cooled, since they shred and/or chop nicest when they are cold, I cut/shred/slice them into whatever form I want to store away. Then I pack them into disposable plastic containers, label what they will be for, and freeze them. This saves tons of time during the holiday, and also saves me some valuable fridge space. Plus, I do not have to worry about the beets going bad in the fridge, nor wilting or going moldy in storage before they are even cooked."
Thanks so much Tamar! I'm going to be using this amazing time saving tip year round for my Moroccan Beet Salad here, which you could also make for Pesach if you eat kitniot. If not, so omit the cumin, and use more garlic and lemon juice.
