I have been growing Beetroot with the intention of pickling it for salads but as we don't have a gas stove and it's been too hot to light the woodfire and I am too slack...Some has been wasted.
Fed to the pig but still wasted.
Yesterday Hubby set the gas ring up outside and we did all this together. He is such a great guy.
Every recipe you look at is different and some seem quite complicated so we went for a basic mix of vinegar, sugar, cooking water and will see how it goes. I pickled beetroot once before but can't remeber what recipe I used and it was too vinegary, this one tasted OK so we will monitor it and see if any adjustments are needed for next time.
