I always used to hate beetroot as a kid as I'd only ever tried it 'pickled' in vinegar. But it's the only root vegetable that seems to like our soil and climate and I'm becoming a convert now I know how good it can taste. I was very pleased to discover this article from Permaculture Magazine - click here.

"Preserving your abundant crops allows a taste of summer throughout the winter. Annie Levy show how to ferment beetroot simply to create a miracle of aliveness, enzymes, and renewed and accessible vitamins".

I'm rubbish at growing beetroot
Every year I choose a plant I can't seem to grow well and try to learn how.
This season, it's beetroot and basil.
Maybe I'll get good enough to have enough to ferment!
