Beetroot was once found only pickled in jars, however in recent years, attitudes have thankfully changed. Beetroot eaten raw or cooked is appreciated for its lovely sweet earthy taste. Great to make juices with too.  As well as the red roots, you can also eat the green leafy part, which tastes like a sweet variation of spinach once cooked.

Beetroot is high in antioxidants and nutrients, including betaine, believed to be good for the heart, as well as the liver and to help in lowering blood pressure.
