Beetroot Chutney

This is a recipe that is fast to make because there is no hand chopping you use the food processor or mincer and then throw it all in the pot. I love making beetroot chutney, it makes an absolute mess and you can threaten the farmer that no one would notice if you chopped him up and put him in with the chutney if he doesn't do as he is told!

  • 2 lb beetroot
  • 1/2 lb onions
  • 1 lb sugar
  • 1 Tblsp salt
  • 3 1/2 cups vinegar (I use apple cider, but white is good too)
  • 1/2 cup of vinegar (yes as well as the 3 1/2cups)
  • 1 Tblsp flour
  • 1 tsp allspice

Put beetroot and onions through the mincer or put through food processor with the grater/chopper attachment. Put onions and beetroot in a saucepan with all of the remaining ingredients (except for the flour and 1/2 cup of vinegar) and boil for half an hour. Mix the flour and remaining vinegar together and add gradually to the beetroot. Boil for a further 5minutes and the mixture will thicken slightly. Coll a little and then bottle and boil.

  • You can replace the allspice with a spice bag in muslin
