For most Aussies their only contact with beetroot is when it falls out of a hamburger and stains their clothes. Beetroot is in fact one of the healthiest vegies around, and has been used since Romans times as everything from an aphrodisiac to a source of fibre and potassium and as a detoxing agent. The Bill after whom this home-made marmalade is named works late into the night peeling and chopping the beetroot that goes into this distinctively different, yummy and extremely versatile product. This spread goes on just about everything – bread, poached salmon, tuna and red kidney beans and roast pork, or mixed with olive oil, then tossed through a rocket and goats curd cheese salad. Bill’s Beetroot Marmalade is manufactured by Tasmanian Gourmet Kitchen.
