Beta vulgaris .....

 
 
....or in other words ....
 
 
you guessed it   ---  beetroot!!
 
 
 
As you may have realised mr digandweed and myself  have lots of it this year!  Here it is in another guise!



 



 
 
This was a recipe that I tore from a Waitrose magazine last Christmas. The Cold Weather Slaw  was delicious with the remains of the turkey and other cold meats on Boxing day and since then has become a firm favourite with its refreshing slightly sweet and sour flavour.
 
 
 
 
This time, we enjoyed it with smoked mackerel pate.
 
 
 
This year mr digandweed and myself grew a variety called Kestrel, last year it was Boltardy, both proved very reliable. I may venture further next year and try some of the striped varieties!
