This beetroot chutney is a very popular recipe, I often get asked for the recipe so I thought I’d pop it up here for you all to find. 

I’ve served this chutney along with other goodies at loads of my classes and I’ve not met anyone that doesn’t like it.       It’s pretty easy to make so why not give it a go. Serve it with cheese, in burgers or sandwiches, or with homemade sausages YUM.   

I usually serve it during my cheese making and sausage making classes

    • No dumb questions Dale. You can either simmer it in a pot till it’s tender or wrap it in foil and bake it when you have the oven on. Like when your cooking a roast or cake!

      You know, you can also buy cooked beetroot in vac seal packs in the veggie section of most Safeway and Coles supermarkets (in Victoria)? These are handy too.
      Hope you love it too 😉
