Sweetfire Beetroot - recipe help

I understand that the delicious Sweetfire Beetroot from Tescos, Waitrose etc. is beetroot that is marinated in chilli.

Has anyone made this themselves? I would love to give it a go as I have lots of beetroot in the fridge at the moment. Hope someone can enlighten me!

    I would make the recipe below and add your beetroot to the sauce and leave to marinate it great on bbq ribs and chicken pieces
    5 Thai Chilies chopped very small
    500 ml maple syrup
    3 Tbsp cider vinegar
    4 Tbsp sherry
    4 Tbsp light soy sauce
    2 tsp minced ginger
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1/4 tsp paprika
    Add all the to a sauce pan and simmer over a low heat until thickened about 15 – 20 min

    Hi kittykat,

    This recipe from the BBC website sounds like the kind of thing you're looking for Marinated Beetroot
