Makes: 6 (450g) jars pickled beetroot and onion

  • 170g caster sugar

  1. Drain the cooked beetroot, keeping the juice aside. Grate the beetroot.
  2. In a saucepan over a medium heat combine the reserved beetroot juice, vinegar and sugar. Stir frequently until the sugar has dissolved, about 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  3. Once cooled a little, add all the grated beetroot, onion, garlic and the salt and pepper. Cover and leave to cool allowing the ingredients to marinate for at least 12 hours, possibly over night.
  4. Ladle the mixture into sterilised jars, leaving a few cm head room, and store until needed. See below for bottling tips.
