Hello from sunny Udon Thani where some will say I am living my dream ..well never wearing stiletto’s again is one of them realised..Long live bare feet and flip-flops!

Anyway I digress... by popular demand especially for Susan and Ian ( and lets see how close mine is to an Aussie staple.

Ta Daa!

Beetroot Chutney:


1.5k Beetroot.

3 Brown Onions.

3 Apples (Granny Smiths)

450ml Balsamic vinegar.

80ml Fresh Orange Juice.

350gm raw sugar.

1/2 tsp ground cloves.

2 large sprigs Rosemary.


Set oven at 200c. Wrap Beetroot in foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Chop Onions and Apples finely, chop cooled Beetroot and put in large pan.

Add remainder of ingredients. Except for Rosemary.

Stir until sugar dissolves, add Rosemary, reduce heat and simmer for at least 1 hr or until mixture thickens slightly. When ready , remove Rosemary and spoon into sterilised Jars.


This can be enjoyed in Burgers or with cold cuts of meat.
