Nothing can compare when it comes to goat’s cheese from Fran’s Swissland Cheese. If you live in KZN I suggest you visit her farm on the Midlands Meander. Her St Maure, slightly warmed on a bruschetta with home-marinated beetroot, is a delicious snack.

Ingredients :

  • 2kg Fresh Beetroot
  • 500 ml Vinegar
  • 500ml White Sugar
  • 100ml Water

Method :

  1. Place beetroot into a pot, skin on, cover with water.  Simmer for about 1 hour or until cooked
  2. Heat vinegar, sugar and water, stirring until all sugar granules are dissolved
  3. Once the beetroot is cooked, place into a sterilised bottle and pour over hot vinegar sugar. Leave to marinate and serve

Please post your comments and any food-related questions below. I look forward to hearing from you.
