beets

Guys, I've got a recipe that says to use canned beets. I've never seen them in the UK. What are they? Could somebody tell me?

Re: beets

Beetroot.
I don't recall seeing them canned in the UK but fresh are easy to find.

Re: beets

Also note that beets, if kept cool and dry, pretty much last forever. Also are delicious.

Re: beets

Canned beet root. Comes whole and sliced (most common). If all you can get is fresh, you would have to peel it, and boil till almost tender to substitute for canned. (assuming the cooking time is not long enough to cook it) The juice in the can if included in the recipe could be substituted by the cooking liquid from above. If you are going to use the cooking liquid I would just cover the beets to use as little as possible so it picks up as much flavor as possible.



By the way the juice can be used for for coloring.

Re: beets

Maybe confusion is caused because the Brits call what we and I think going on my knowledge of Popeye cartoons, the US call Spinach, SilverBeet. English Spinach is a different critter.

Fresh cooked Beetroot is an absolute joy. There are numerous ways to cook but one of my favourites is wrapped in tinfoil, baked then served with chives and sour cream ... just like a baked potato. Top notch tucker but when you peer into the toilet bowl in the morning its best to remember what you ate the night before. Scared the daylights out of me.

I am curious to know what recipe requires canned beetroot.

That is my favorite way to eat beets too, delicious. I usually get a few from my garden, but this year the slugs got to them too much.

I have seen salad recipes that call for canned beet.

Re: beets

Pickled beets are great on salads and then I use the brine to pickle hard boiled eggs. Yum.
