Australians have a fondness for beetroot, but did you know that Australian canned beetroot is currently in short supply?

Once cooled, remove the skin, slice or dice the beetroot, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Enjoy them in salads or on your burger. Fresh beetroot bulbs sold by the kilo are good value
