Have you ever purchased a bunch of fresh beets and forgotten about them? There's no need to toss soft beets away; they can easily be made crispy and crunchy again with just a cup of water. Because beets are a root vegetable, they drink up water like a sponge. Simply fill a glass with cold water and let the beets soak for a day or two. Those thirsty beets will drink it, plump up and be as good as new.
