My dad's a strange bloke. Our crop of Beetroot is ready and as the process goes, he's soaked them in water - or possibly boiled, i'm not sure - and kept the leftover water in a bottle. It's very dark purple in colour, a lot like Vimto/Ribena, and there will be some beetroot taste in there - although how much, I'm not sure.
Anyway, he's talking about making a red wine and topping up the wine with this juice for colour and a unique flavour. Anyone done anything similar to this? I suppose it beats water...hahah.
