Pulling the Beetroot

Well, my Beetroots have been amazing. I sowed three rows of them and it’s been a bumper harvest.

They really are beautiful plants. We bought one of the those little devices that slices things really thinly. And then baked them to make Beet crisps. EVEN the boys ate them. Incredible.

    They look great, did you cook (boil) the beetroot before slicing and baking?

    My beetroots on my allotment did pretty well this year too. I love the stripeyness of yours. And what a great idea, thinly slicing them for beetroot crisps. I just happen to have a load in the fridge, so maybe I shall try this.

    Gorgeous pics. Beetroot did great for us too this year. First time we grew it, but certainly not the last. Love the different colours and patterning you can get with it.
