Red Beets
These are so sweet and delicious. Don’t forget the greens which are a veg all their own! It’s one of our 2-for-1 veggies! Just remember to store the greens separately from the roots so they stay fresh and they don’t wilt.

Parsley
Make a parsley pistou and freeze it to dollop on your vegetable soups all winter long. You can also wash the parsley, spin dry and pack into a ziploc bag (or glass jar) to toss in the freezer. When you’re cooking this winter, grab a handful of frozen leaves to bring bright green color and fresh flavor to your dishes!
