Thank you for this Vicki, now I see it I have a feeling this is the one I used to make all the time.

One of my beetroot jars cracked in half in the water bath yesterday so I now have only 9 jars although truth be known this will be ample because while going through the cupboards I found 4 jars of beetroot left from my last lot. This means that in all we have 13 jars of beetroot which I am sure will see us through till next summer.

Cheers

I love this beetroot relish and am waiting rather impatiently for my beetroot to mature so I can make some more.
DH loves beetroot and eats it almost daily so I need to have a good store of it to call on.
