    It seems to have disappeared and gone largely unsung for many years, but now looks to be creeping back in.

    I'm not saying the beetroot industry is inherently devious, but I did find a beetroot section attached to a tub of coleslaw from sainsburys the other day, like a parasite.

    Hard to avoid it isn't it. Relentless TV product placement and advertising campaigns aimed directly at the most vulnerable. My kids never stop clamouring for beetroot salad and they are fussy about the variety too - plain old Moneta or Boltardy won't do, they want Chioggia because that's what Kevin next door always has.

    The beetroot is the work of the Devil and should be spurned at every opportunity.:evil:

    I am finding the same thing with Rhubarb, who decides when these things are
    fashionable again ?

    In the winter mrs rich p does a tray of roasted root vegetables including beetroot. Ah, how I miss those cold days, warm fires and Sunday roasts.:evil:

    My wife did some home made crisps the other day, fantastic!!

    Potato, Beetroot, Parsnip and Carrot.

    Highly recommended.

    Also if you want to do a display of multi coloured poo you can get the purple ones out by simply eating a whole jar of pickled beetroot.

    Good Ol Beetroot. I grows it every year in me garding. Can't beat some freshly grown/picked and boiled beetroot. And if I gets too much to gobble up that way I makes Borscht and freezes it - absolutely Yummy :smile: :smile: :smile: :biggrin:
