Beetroot seems to be forever popular with top chefs - maybe its the colour? This makes it a double challenge for me. Firstly, I'm not overly keen on beetroot because of its sweetish taste. Secondly, I've seen it used every which way and I don't want to copy something already done. However, I like a good challenge so I'm ordering a nice selection of beetroot (different colours). :happy:

Hmmm, first cranberries, and now beets. Two things in a row that "I'm not overly keen on." :scratchhead:

I love beetroot. I've got 4 in tbe fridge right now but they are for beetroot pickled eggs, something I've already written up on here many years ago. They will be my 4th batch of 2-3 dozen pickled eggs done in beetroot. The other two batches are curry pickled eggs, also written up. I also picked the beetroot and the onion at the same time despite many recipes saying through them away after getting the coloured water! What a waste of beetroot.

I shall have to think hard. I can see a christmassy experiment happening.
