Have got plenty of Beetroot - as usual but seem to only do betroot in vinegar or occaisonal use as a roasted vegtable.

Does anyone have a good beetroot chutney recipe , have a supply of chillies and onions.

Anything considered!

thanks in anticipation  George.

Hello George

I found this thread for beetroot chutney on another forum. Everyone who made it gave it the thumbs up. Also I liked the idea of adding orange to it.

Beetroot and chocolate cake is recommended and that was on the list of recipes from lovebeetroot site. My daughter made it from a chocolate cookbook she got one Christmas, even my beetroot hating son ate it.

One recipe not on there is sweet and sour beetroot. I cook the beetroot first and then make a sauce from orange juice, honey, balsamic vinegar and cornflour. Sorry no exact ratios as I just guess and adjust as I go along. I then heat the beetroot through in the sauce.

Made some rather lovely beetroot relish today, I'd roasted some beetroot on saturday and then we'd not got round to eating it, so was thinking of pickling it, but found the  recipe in the river cottage preserves book.

I got the beetroot from Morrisons, who are selling it for about 80p per kg.

It's really easy and well worth a try, keeps for up to 1 yr. If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll add the recipe

Oh yes ! doh  It was late ... that's my excuse anyway! (We're an hour ahead here.)

Janet, what does the beetroot relish go with? Does HFW have any suggestions?

Its suggested with smoked mackerel and cold meats and sandwiches, not sure I'd got for it with mackerel, but it was lovely with the goats cheese the other day.
