cool beetroots

This year we had an amazing beetroot crop, intensely delicious they left a trail of deep purple around the kitchen. Mid-January the beetroots we pulled up from the garden began to have multiple tunnels through them – the ants had found a feast. So we harvested the worst affected area and kept the crop in the greenhouse next to the potatoes, sadly a few days later we returned and they had all become soft. It turns out that beetroot must be kept chilled once pulled out of the ground…luckily beetroot are also delicious in vegetable smoothies, so we used up the soft ones in our ‘green’ smoothies.
