Mart--I do not remember how I made them as the recipe and attempt was from seven years ago now. I discarded it when I failed to get the flavour that I wanted. I will look again in that pile of oldy-mouldy recipe's collected through the years. (Hiya Mart--I looked again through all the old recipe's and could not find that pickled beetroot recipe. Ach.) Thanks so much, Gail, for that link. I shall take a look.
