Full Answer

Cool the beets in cold water and peel immediately. You may freeze small beets whole. Cut the bigger beets into one-quarter inch slices, or cube them. Spread the cooled, prepared beets in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze. Once the beets become frozen, pack and store them in freezer bags or freezer containers.
