How do you freeze beets?

For freezing select young red beets. Wash and trim beets tops, leaving 1/2 inch of stems and root to prevent bleeding of color during cooking.
Cook in boiling water until tender- 30 minutes for small beets; 45 to 50 minutes for medium size beets.

Plunge the beets in cold water and peel as soon as cool enough to handle removing stem and tap root. Cut into slices or cubes. Package into freezer bag (or plastic container), leaving ½-inch headspace. Seal and freeze.

You can also freeze the beets first in a single layer on a cookie sheet, and then transfer the frozen beets into the freezer bag or container.
