I love beets

My favorite thing is to add julienne beets to my salad.
But I am also cheap as chimps so I buy canned.
I can never tell if I am saving money or not though.
Does anyone mathy have a formula for how cheap beets would need to be per pound fresh to cost the same as canned beets in a can?

    The amount of beets in the can is printed on the can. You can figure out price per pound of canned beets very easily with that knowledge. Didn't school start again today?

      If they sell by weight, drain the beets and weigh them. Compare the price per unit weight for fresh, keeping in mind that you will lose a small percentage to peeling, and don't be afraid to price out your labour (washing/peeling/both, any sort of cooking time)
      When fresh go on sale here, they're nearly half the price of canned... and then I wind up with pickled beets and beet-pickled eggs for the rest of the year.

        They never seem to go on sale here.
        Also I dont have a scale to weight the drained beets. I wish it would just say on the can

          How would they get you to pay for that sweet, sweet, red water? I'm sure Amazon has some dirt cheap food scales. The one I use to weigh small additions for my beer cost like $5.

    That's not how you use the phrase "cheap as chips."
    And fresh beetroot is far cheaper than canned. I buy them at 50¢/lb the pork and shred them and store in the freezer.

      First of all its "cheap as chimps"
      Second of all, you just say beets. We all know its a root, you dont have to say that part.
      Its exactly as is you were saying carrotroot

            in america we put the greens in soup

            In Soviet Canada, I think we just ship the greens to you... or feed them to our livestock. We got mountains of Swiss Chard at grocery stores, but never any tops to our beets unless we grow them ourselves.
