Salt-Crust Baked Beetroot Method
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Gently clean the beetroot by scraping with a small knife; do not peel them.
  • Mix all the salt crust ingredients together in a large bowl to form a paste.
  • Roll this paste out on a floured surface, then wrap each beetroot up in some of the paste; push the edges together to seal it.
  • Lay the wrapped beetroot on a baking tray, and bake for 45 minutes–1 hour until cooked, set them aside to cool.
  • When the beetroot are cool to the touch, break all the paste open and take them out; they should be cooked but still firm to your touch.
  • Take the skins off carefully.
  • Marinate in pepper berry vinegar.
