One for the Americans

Hi everyone,
I wonder if you can help me. I have a recipe which calls for a can of sliced beets. I've never seen these in the UK. Could anyone tell me what these are? What can be used instead?

Confused in the UK

Re: One for the Americans

My guess would be pickled beets--you see them small and whole, or sliced, but usually in a bottle rather than a can. Does pickled make sense in your recipe?

Beetroot.
A jar of regular pickled beetroot slices but here they have them in a can.

That just sliced beetroot. The receipe may want them pickled or not. If not buy them fresh in the supermarket or speciality grocer, cook em, slice em

Re: One for the Americans

You mean sliced beet like this



In the UK most likely find its in jars rather than canned.

Search (beetroot) - Groceries - Tesco Groceries

Re: One for the Americans

How about use steamed carrot?
I think any root veggies will do, like Jicama

Re: One for the Americans

Go to an Iranian area, they love beets. I lived in Iran in the mid 70s, and there were corner beet distributors, much like frankfurter/hot dog stands in the US.
