I used this recipe to can over half the beets in my garden. I think the pickling mixture is perfect and wouldn't change a thing!-23 Jul 2001

I used fresh beets from my garden, steamed them until tender, then put them in a large bowl of cold water, and had no pink fingers by peeling them underwater! Otherwise my hands turn beet red!I also used one of those rippled french fry cutters to slice them - a simple hand held tool.I canned some in pint jars (made 4 pints),and will enjoy beets in the dead of winter.This recipe is tasty- just the right spice mix.-16 Aug 2003


This is a wonderful recipe -- it reminds me of my grandmother's homemade pickled beets. I used fresh beets, boiled about 15 min, then peeled, and I added some hardboiled eggs. I marinated everything for a couple of days to make sure it really got that flavor!-04 Aug 2002

An Original Recipe By Not Quite Nigella

  • 500g beetroot, roasted* instructions below
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 3/4 cup-1 cup white or brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Step 1 - To roast beetroot, wash the beetroot and place in a cast iron pot or a pot with a lid. Drizzle with oil and roll them in the oil to coat and then bake for 1 hour to 1.5 hours (depending on the size of the beetroot). I sometimes leave them in the oven overnight to cool and then peel the skin off the next morning when they're while wearing gloves to stop my fingers staining. Chop the peeled beetroot into quarters and process in a food processor until you get a rough, grated texture. You can also start with raw beetroot and grate it although the cooking time on the stovetop will be a bit longer.

Step 2 - Heat a saucepan on medium to high heat and without adding any oil, add the mustard seeds. They will 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, allspice, cinnamon, vinegar, salt and beetroot and stir to combine. This will cook quite quickly in about 15-20 minutes as the beetroot is already roasted. If you're cooking with raw, grated beetroot, check on the texture and it may need maybe 30-40 minutes. Simmer with the lid off to drain any excess liquid (you can keep a little syrup in it if you want).

Step 3 - To place in preserving jars, preheat oven to 180C/350F. Place jars and heatproof lid in the oven for 10 minutes. Carefully remove and ladle the relish into the jars while still hot. Carefully using oven mitts or thick tea towels, place the lid on very tightly and upturn the jars for 10 minutes. Then turn right side up and press down on the "bubble" on the lid and the seal should depress.

To Begin Making Spiced Beetroot Buttermilk first put the beetroot in a pressure cooker and half a cup of water and boil on medium heat for two whistles. Let the pressure release naturally and let the beetroot cool.

Once the beetroot is cooled blend it in a blender along with ginger, green chilies and 1 sprig of curry leaves. Strain the pureed beetroot mixture through a strainer into a bowl.

In another big bowl whisk the curd and then add salt, chaat masala, pureed beetroot and water.

Heat oil in a tadka pan over medium heat add mustard seeds and curry leaves and allow it to crackle. Once it crackles, turn off heat. Spoon seasoning to the prepared Beetroot buttermilk and mix.

Check the taste and adjust the salt and seasonings accordingly. Once done, you can serve the beetroot buttermilk immediately or refrigerate it for a few hours and serve chilled.

Chocolate Beetroot Brownies


230g butter (half for icing and half for brownies)
2 cups icing sugar
1 tbsp beet purée*
Splash of milk
3-4 medium cooked beets
3 eggs
1 cup dark chocolate chips
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup self raising flour

*To make beat purée: simply blend cooked beets in a food processor or blender, adding a little water if need be to form a smooth paste.

Cook the Beets

Cut the leaves and stems from the beets and scrub them under cold running water. Put the whole, unpeeled beets in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil cover the pan, and simmer over medium heat for about 20 to 30 minutes, until tender. Alternatively, coat each whole beet with olive oil and wrap in foil. Place them in a baking pan and roast in a preheated 375 F oven for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until tender.

Slip skins from the cooked beets and cut into 1/4- to 1/2-inch pieces.

Make the Sauce

In a large skillet or saute pan, combine the brown sugar, apple or orange juice, butter, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.

Add the cooked, peeled, and diced beets to the sauce. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until the liquid has evaporated and the beets are glazed with the sauce, about 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Double or triple the proportions for this recipe and freeze some for later enjoyment. Completely cool the glazed beets. Pack them into freezer containers or heavy-duty freezer bags, label with the name and date, and freeze for up to 8 months. When you're ready to enjoy them, thaw in the unopened container in the refrigerator. Reheat and enjoy.
  • The beets might be a little mushier thawed and frozen than freshly roasted and glazed. To avoid mushy beets, roast the beets for less time until they are al dente.
  • Additionally, the sauce might have thinned out too much. Correct this with a slurry made of 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup cold water. Add while reheating, stirring constantly, and it will thicken up.

Recipe Variation

To make spiced glazed beets, add 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg to the sauce mixture.
