There are two types of beetroot: long and globe shaped. Use either for this spicy pickle, which makes an excellent accompaniment to cold meats. This is a good recipe for using up large, maincrop beetroots, available all year, which are tougher than the younger, small beetroots which are available in early summer and are so good in salads.
