This recipe for beetroot will guide you to cook and bottle your own beetroot. Use sterilized bottles and if you put the cap on while the contents are still hot, it will cause a vacuum seal, enabling you to store it for quite a long time. Once you open the bottle to serve the beetroot, slice in some fresh onion with it.
