Beetroot and Pomegranate Relish

This recipe comes to us from the kitchen of  Caroline Gray, owner/food consultant, A Bit of Jam & Pickle.

Caroline was a regular instructor at the Neff Market Kitchen Cooking School which closed in May 2020.



  • 2.5 kg beetroots – roasted, peeled and grated
  • 4 granny smith apples – peeled and finely diced
  • 1 red onion – finely diced
  • 500 ml red wine vinegar
  • 250 g brown sugar
  • 125 ml pomegranate molasses
  • 20 g sea salt
  • 10 g ras el hanout spice mix
  • arrowroot (if needed)



There is a bit of work in preparing the ingredients for this recipe, but once done the actual cooking process is to simply throw everything into a pot and turn on the heat.

Bring to a boil and them simmer until the ingredients break down and become quite pulpy.

Add arrowroot mixed with cold water if needed.

Spoon into a jar.
