Ingredients

  • 3-4 medium beetroot (about 450g in total)
  • 4 garlic cloves (optional)
  • 1 red chilli (optional)
  • 250ml cider vinegar
  • 250ml apple juice
  • 200ml apple pectin (or 1 tbsp of the powdered version), from Tesco or Sainsbury’s
  • 250g granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 50g fresh mint leaves

Method

  1. Wearing rubber gloves, peel and grate the beetroot into a bowl. Finely chop the garlic and chilli, if using, and stir into the beetroot. Transfer to a large pan with the vinegar, apple juice, pectin, sugar and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook for 40-45 minutes. It should be thickened and coat the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat.
  2. Roughly chop the mint leaves and stir into the pan. Transfer to sterilised jars and cool. Eat immediately or keep in a cool place for up to 6 months.
