My hands are stained red and I no matter of washing seems to be getting them back to their original colour. That is what a weekend of working with beetroot will do to you. But it was all in the name of this newsletter! After being served a beetroot hot chocolate a few weeks ago (and wondering what the point of it all was), I decided to try my own.
While there isn't much of a history of beets and hot chocolate, the beets do turn the drink bright red. The Mayans used to add annatto seeds to their drinking chocolate to get the same effect (perhaps minus all of the impressive health benefits beetroots supposedly have).
So this week's newsletter is everything you never realised you wanted to know about beetroot.
Thanks for following and if you have any hot chocolate news you'd like to share, send it over!
