Beetroot Pickles and relish

Postby Shadowgirlau » Mon Mar 19, 2012 8:24 am

Well I am suffering for it today but I have been a busy beaver making both beetroot relish and pickled beetroot. Think I have enough of the pickled to last us for the next year and then some. Only made one batch of the relish and for some reason ended up with beetroot from one end of the kitchen to the other. DH loves beetroot and mentioned last night that there was none left in the garden. Umn :roll: Next will be more tomato sauce though not today as I need a break, maybe tomorrow?

Hi kathleen,
I make beetroot relish too, but mine is ginger and beetroot. I was wondering if you would be kind enough to share your recipe with us, but I understand if not, My other half and I thoroughly enjoy beetroot in all shapes and forms too.
Someone also mentioned Choko Chutney, and I would love to try that too. I usually make piles and piles of choko pickles every year. I tried PC canning them this year, but we just found the finished product inedible.
Love reading what everyone is up to,
Regards,
Elizabeth

Hi Elizabeth,

Welcome, I'll put my choko chutney over on the recipes. It's an adaptation of Digby Law's recipe.

Give me a few days though... ;)

Did you do a search on the forum for Kathleen's beetroot pickles I'm sure it's on here.
:D

Sorry Elizabeth,
Have only just seen this request today. My beetroot relish recipe is on here somewhere. In the recipe section I think? however since I made this particular recipe I have recently made another which we like more. I will be happy to share that recipe with you as well if you still would like (another one)
Ginger, yum that one sounds interesting. Have you put that recipe in the files?

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for sharing your recipes, . I have also added my Beetroot and Ginger relish to the collection. Have just made 37 half pints after emptying our patches of beetroots. Also got about 20 pints of pickled beetroots all up as well.
Have also made up a lovely pile of Tangerine/Ruby grapefruit and Lemon marmalade, Got 23 half pints and 2 pints. I was very pleased with it, I'm not usually a huge marmalade fan ,but this one was quite nice.
Our Apricot tree up the bush is heavily loaded, so I am looking forward to putting it away ,hopefully we will time our visit right and beat the King parrots to them.
Anyway,
Cheers for now.
Jane

Beetroot and Ginger sounds very interesting Jane, will have to remember that next time I put some down. We had such a dry winter last year that we haven't put down a garden this year.
