Method

Beetroot Pickle
Course grate the peeled raw beetroot and finely slice the red onions.
Heat a medium saucepan with the butter and sweat the onions and beetroot with seasoning until it starts to caramelise. This should take about 10 - 15 minutes.
Add the sugar and cook until dissolved.
Deglaze with the vinegar and cook for a further 8 -10 minutes. You would like the pickle to be coating and not too dry or too wet.
Once the pickle is done stir in the chopped thyme and cool the pickle.
