Mustardy Roasted Beetroot Relish

There are a great many delicious things to do with beetroot. I had been thinking for a long time that making a relish would be delicious, so i had a go at making a roasted beetroot relish with mustard seeds and horseradish cream added. It turned out very well, especially on a hamburger or with barbequed meats. Here is the recipe!

2 bunches (about 1 kg) beetroot
700 ml apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons dry roasted mustard seeds
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1/2 kilo sugar

To start I roasted the beetroot, unpeeled in the oven for about half an hour. Once it had started to smell roasty, i removed it and peeled the skin. I would recommend gloves for all those who do not want violently fuchsia hands. The beetroot were then grated and placed in in a large heavy based saucepan with the vinegar, spices and sugar and cooked until the beetroot was soft and the liquid had become syrupy. Horseradish was added and into sterilised jars and voila!
