I think that beetroot is one of my most favourite vegetables. It has a rich earthiness and subtle sweetness which just goes with so many things. I could eat it in any way, shape or form. I particularly love picked beetroot, and don't get me started on Harvard Beets. Ohh . . . and steamed buttered beets. Julienned beetroot in a salad . . . there is just no end to my love for the stuff!
That is why when English Provender contacted me asking me if I would like to try their new Beetroot Proper Pickle I jumped at the chance. English Provender? Yes! Beetroot? Double Yes !! Pickle? Triple Yes!!!
Rich and fruity, crunchy British beetroot is combined with a unique blend of pickle spices creating a pickle with a beautiful pinky red hue. It’s the perfect addition to your lunchtime sarnie or for the more adventurous can be used for a mean salmon rosti or even to cure a whole fillet of salmon.
I've been enjoying it all week. It was especially good in a cheese sarnie along with some baby rocket and ruby chard. Yum! Yum!
This stuff is really, REALLY good! It is available from Waitrose and ASDA stores nationwide for just £1.50 a jar. Sign me up! I am in proper love with a proper pickle.
