Beetroots and turnips, as well as all root vegetables are often encountered but also often neglected as autumn-winter products. Having been well known since ancient times, they are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals. And especially during the cold and flu season, they can replace an entire row of drugs in the medicine cabinet.
