Beetroot Glut

Perfect weather at the market yesterday and there is a subtle change in the produce available.
Chard, spinach, radishes are giving way to beetroot, figs and berries.

Coriander, celery leaf and sage are giving way to parsley, basil and mint.

We are enjoying a glut of beetroot at the moment and my hands are commonly pink at some point daily.

We are boiling them and slicing them for sandwiches or enjoying them hot as a side vegetable at dinner.
We are adding cooked chunks to salads or using it raw grated with carrot and dressing it with a pomegranate molasses, olive oil and cider vinegar dressing with walnuts and feta.

I am also naturally fermenting some for lacto-fermented pickles.
Tangy crunchy beetroot slices for anti-pasto platters.

It is on my bench and being turned daily. 
I took inspiration from this recipe here for my pickling solution flavours.


  1. Great photo's Tanya, especially the salad one.... looks very yummy!

  2. It's supposed to get down to 6F/-14C here tonight. Your photos are balm. I'm going balmy. Brrrrrrrr.

  3. I love beetroot - thanks for inspiring me to go out and buy some from my local market...yum!

  4. The salad looks delish.. Lovely pics, I did read figs???

  5. Hello Tanya, I love beetroot, going to grow some this year, its cold here, might be snow, i'm itching to get over the allotment and start digging, but not yet :-) thanks for the beetroot tips x

  6. Beautiful, beautiful pics Tanya (next year's calendar?)
    Just wondering if you'd like a few pieces of lovely Tasmanian kitch? I am having a big clear out and I thought I'd ask you before I drop it at the oppy. I am happy to pay post (you might know someone else who would like it...)

  7. I don't think I have ever had it. Looks so interesting. Just so you know the plant therapy giveaway is open worldwide

  8. I enjoy fresh beetroot juiced with apple, orange, carrot and celery. Next time I buy a bunch, I 'll get extra to cook and pickle. I love it!
    Wonderful colour in your photos, very pretty.

    Cheers - Joolz
