Home Made Beetroot

Posted 2015-01-03 by finyfollow

Tinned beetroot, whilst great for saving time, has a lot of sugar and chemicals in it.

Whereas home made beetroot is a healthy vegetable with just 1 tsp of sugar added.

It is very easy to make, lasts for ages, and tastes like "the real thing". It can be used in salads, burgers and other things.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 45-55 minutes
Makes: large quantity

Ingredients
3-5 beetroots
4 tbsp vinegar (approximate)

Method
  • Wash the beetroot thoroughly and cut off any LONG bits but leave the ends on - as per the photo.

  • Put them in a pot and cover completely with water.


  • Bring to the boil, turn heat down and simmer for between 45 minutes and 55 minutes with the lid on. Check after about 30 minutes to make sure the water has not evaporated, and if it has, add a bit more.

  • Pierce with a fork so you can tell when they are just tender.

  • Leave to cool and then pour the liquid into a Tupperware or dish. Add a teaspoon of sugar (if you like it sweet you can add more) and top the liquid up with about 4 tbsp of vinegar. This will also make it last longer.

  • Slice the beetroot and carefully drop into the liquid.


  • Put in fridge ready to be used whenever you need it.
