My allotment neighbour said that I could help myself to the beetroots that he had on his plot. Luckily for me I can recognise what a beetroot leaf looks like because the so called beetroots that I found were not what I expected at all!
They were the biggest beetroots that I had ever seen…..and these were destined for the compost bin. They have since boiled, sliced and sitting happy in vinegar ready for consumption in a month or 2.
Ok, so that’s the first batch. They are so big that I can only boil around 3 beets at a time! All i need now are empty jars. Time to put in a few wants with colleagues!!!
