Beetroot Relish
Kate Storey
Kate Storey Realty

Makes 2 medium jars

500g beetroot
1 tablespoon vegetable oil, for roasting
1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
2 brown onion
1 tablespoon vegetable oil, for frying
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup water

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon ginger

2 teaspoons salt

Preheat the oven to 180°C.  To roast the beetroot, wash and place on an oven tray, rub the beetroot with oil and bake for about 40 minutes or until soft – the beetroot should be soft when pierced with a sharp knife.  Cool slightly and peel off the skins. Finely grate the beetroot using a food processor or grater.

Place a saucepan over medium to high heat and without adding any oil, add the mustard seeds. When they start to pop, turn the heat down to medium, add the oil and chopped onion and fry the onion with the mustard seeds until translucent. Add the sugar, water, cinnamon, vinegar, pepper, ginger and salt and stir to combine. This will cook quite quickly in about 15-20 minutes, as the beetroot is already roasted.  Simmer the mixture with the lid off to reduce any excess liquid.  Pour into clean sterilised jars.

Beetroot relish is delicious served with savoury pies and tarts and is a lovely addition to a cheese platter or in sandwiches.

Gardening Tip

Tasmania’s climate is perfect for growing beetroot – it grows in most soils and can be planted from spring to autumn.  Dig in some compost, space the seeds or seedlings 10cm
