I like to experiment with different sorts of food. I like traditional red beetroot so decided to make a donation for some of golden beetroot that was on the Tyntesfield produce stand. It was grown in their kitchen garden.
I packed it up in a brown paper bag and put some money in the donation pot.
Later at home the beetroot had a good wash.
I popped it all into a big saucepan and simmered it for about an hour.
After straining off the water and letting it cool a bit I removed the skins. The skins just slide off cooked beetroot very easily.
All ready now for slicing up.
I sliced them all up, added a little balsamic vinegar and put them in the fridge ready to have for lunch the next day.
The glory of golden beetroot is not getting stained paws while making beetroot sandwiches.
Nye joined me for lunch as he rather enjoys a bit of beetroot. He added some horseradish sauce to his sandwich. We both agreed golden beetroot is delicious.
