Storing beetroot
« on: November 21, 2019, 20:29 »
Hi,

Last year I stored my carrots in a box filled with sand. That worked quite well.  I now have a glut of beetroot to deal with, will they store in sand also or is there a better way?

Good evening andyww2013
I store my beetroot and carrots in a mixture of oak sawdust and chips care of Wadworth's brewery (other breweries are available).  I have tried sand but the carrots grow hairs (I wish it would work on my head)!

Cheers,  Tony.+
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

I tried freezing them and that worked well.  It also means you have a stash of ready roasted beetroot that just needs a defrost and warming up to be ready  :)

I left mine in the raised bed after quickly earthing up and they are still fine! I didn't plan to do this. I was going away for a couple of months and didn't have time to lift and store. One job saved for next year  :D

Soon I will want to start prepping the bed so the few that are remaining I will try freezing.

It is delicious. In the winter we have it every time we (my husband   :lol:) cook a roast dinner. In summer it goes on the BBQ. If you check it out on google you will find lots of lovely recipes. Enjoy!

Beetroots freeze well.
I roast them whole for 45 mins at 180c. Remove the skins once cooled and freeze in containers. Have them whole or crinkle cut, both types freeze well.
Also pickle a load in Sarsons classic malt pickling vinegar. That pickling vinegar keeps any vinegar taste very mild, which is how I like it. Same method as above but instated of freezing, put beetroot into a kilnar jar and add the sarsons vinegar.
