Pickled Beetroot

Recommended Posts

Discuss ......:P

Discovered a bottle unopened when moving. Haywards sliced beetroot. Delicious. Is pickled food good or bad? Maybe too acidic.

I've not had a pickled egg from the chip shop for a while.

I loathe beetroot but must try and like it as it has enormous health benefits. Need to investigate the most palatable way of eating it. My Mum loved baby beetroot in vinegar but I have not touched it since I was a child.

Pickled eggs in chip shops have often fascinated me. My local chippy has a jar on the counter and the jar regularly goes from full to nearly empty then back to full again. I assume it is a new jar. What do pickled eggs taste like - aren't they just sodden with vinegar?

If you like it it's good, if you don't it's bad. Just don't stuff yourself with too much of anything and you won't need to bother worrying about what's in it.

acidity regulators - BAD.

buy fresh and a pressure cooker - now that's good beetroot.

I love beetroot.

Have just discovered you can nuke it.

Have loads on my allotment!

Whether pickling is good or bad I don't know, but beetroot is a super food. And not only that, super low in calories. You can't go far wrong with it. I always loved beetroot, & a picked jar will last 6 weeks in the fridge.

That chip shop pickled egg bottle has always fascinated me too. Odd.

Beetroot is good to eat now, and was so twenty years back.

But I recall a European surplus a few years back, and a highly successful ad/marketing campaign to rebrand it as a 'superfood'. The public eagerly bought into this load of ********. It was during the organic-is-good mania.

It's just the same beetroot it always was.

The term "superfood" may be hyperbole, but beetroot is good for you regardless ;)

Agreed. I've grown and eaten maybe 80-100? this summer.

Does anyone eat chip shop pickled eggs? I've never seen anyone buy a single one.

Maybe they disappear all by themselves....

Pickles these days aren't very pickled. It used to mean in a jar of vinegar so they never went off. Now it's more like 90% water 10% vinegar so they go off rapidly, hence in answer to Mr Steed I don't think the pickling is too much of a problem these days because of the lower acidity.

Love pickled beetrot, onions, cabbage, gherkins :) had my first pickled egg recently, ok but preferred fresh.

from wiki:

Additionally, several preliminary studies on both rats and humans have shown betaine may protect against liver disease, particularly the buildup of fatty deposits in the liver caused by alcohol abuse, protein deficiency, or diabetes, among other causes. The nutrient also helps individuals with hypochlorhydria, a condition causing abnormally low levels of stomach acid, by increasing stomach acidity.[2]

Beetroot juice has been shown to lower blood pressure and thus help prevent cardiovascular problems. Research published in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension showed drinking 500 ml of beetroot juice led to a reduction in blood pressure within one hour. The reduction was more pronounced after three to four hours, and was measurable up to 24 hours after drinking the juice. The effect is attributed to the high nitrate content of the beetroot. The study correlated high nitrate concentrations in the blood following ingestion of the beetroot juice and the drop in blood pressure. Dietary nitrate, such as that found in the beetroot, is thought to be a source for the biological messenger nitric oxide, which is used by the endothelium to signal smooth muscle, triggering it to relax. This induces vasodilation and increased blood flow.[3]

Other studies have found the positive effects beetroot juice can have on human exercise and performances. In studies conducted by the Exeter University, scientists found cyclists who drank a half-litre of beetroot juice several hours before setting off were able to ride up to 20% longer than those who drank a placebo blackcurrant juice.

Seems like a super food to me.

I think if I drank that much beetroot juice prior to cycling it could get rather messy indeed. I do love beetroot though. Pickled or roasted for me.

Yeah well I can tell you that drinking half a litre of beetroot juice a day isn't fantastic fun.

However it is definitely good for me, so I haven't stopped yet.

Had roasted beetroot. Baby beetroots I think, a friend did them as a starter. Lovely.

But I hated the stuff at school where is was served up as part of a salad, and just tasted vile, in the only way something conjured up in a school canteen can!
