Pickled Beetroot - Digby Law's

Postby minnie » Tue May 18, 2010 8:51 am

From the excellent book Digby Law's Pickle and Chutney Cookbook - well worth buying.

Ingredients
beetroot
2 cups sugar
4 cups malt vinegar
3 cups strained cooking water

Method
Scrub the beetroot very gently to remove all dirt. Cook in boiling water to cover for about 1 hour, until tender. Allow to cook, then peel and slice, reserving the cooking water.

In another saucepan combine the sugar, malt vinegar and cooking water, and bring to the boil. Add the sliced beetroot and bring back to the boil.

Pack the beetroot into hot, clean jars, cover with the hot liquid and seal.

Thank you Vicki, that's the one :D I make two lots of this usually with the first being as for the recipe and the second batch having spiced added to the mix. Just couldn't for the life of me remember the amounts. :oops:

Well today I have been busy making pickled beetroot again. We harvested the last of the beetroot so with this lot of pickles we should have enough to see us through the summer.

There are now only 2 rows of beetroot left in the bed and I think I shall make a beetroot relish with that lot for a change.

Vicki I still haven't gotten around to buying another Digby Law book and I can't remember if he has a beetroot relish recipe in it? either, does he? I made beetroot relish last year and while it was okay it wasn't as good as the relish I used to make. Darn it I can't remember where I got the recipe from either so I can see several trial and errors in my future :roll: Mind you I don't know why I continually use recipes either as I always in the end make up my own :o

Cheers

Hi Kathleen,

He sure does, if I can get this darn book to stay open I'll put the recipe on the recipe areas.

His book has sooo many pieces of paper and markers in it, I just love his book!
:D
