Siba’s tip…

You can always cook the beetroot from scratch if you have the time by placing the whole unpeeled beets in enough water to cover. Cook for 15-20 minutes until just cooked. Allow to cool, then remove the skin, using your hands. The skin comes off so easily when cooked.

It’s best to use gloves to protect your hands from turning purple when handling cooked beet.

You could also rub oil on you hands at this helps lessen the staining of your hands.
