    Default Pickled beetroot query

    I pickled some beetroot last October. Just decided that I really fancied a beetroot butty so went and got a fresh jar from the cupboard to find the beetroot has faded to a yikky brown. Is it still okay to eat and what causes the fading. I am sure it is dark in the cupboard (can't fit in to check though)
    Happy Gardening,

    I wouldn't myself; if it looks wrong I'll not go near it. Probably why I'm a veggie

    LOL, wonder what causes the fading. I guess I will have to go back to buying it ready pickled when I fancy it. Bummer

    Nah - I mean meat looks wrong to me. Just can't do it.

    But manky beetroot also sounds as if it looks wrong.
