Beetroot over the years seems to have been banished to the back of the fridge in an out of date pickled jar, or found cubed in random supermarket salads. Not in this house I tell you, not in this house. I make brownies with it, houmous, stews and risottos. Ive got to be honest I don’t ever roast my own, unless my allotment wielding neighbour has a surplus. Roasting your own does taste great, but it takes far too long to cook and always seems to stay on the wrong side of hard for me. So shop bought, unpickled it is.
