Tassie Taste Bud’s Chilli Beetroot is possibly the best way of winning over those who think they aren’t chilli fans. Long, slow cooking softens the beetroot beautifully and allows it to absorb the flavours of the sugar, vinegar and chilli. Use it to spice up a sandwich, in or with salads, or with cold meat and charcuterie.
Available in 270g containers.
Ingredients: beetroot, chilli, raw and brown sugar, red wine, balsamic vinegar, black pepper, salt.
TassieTasteBuds has been based in Woodbridge since 2007 and is operated by Ann, who has many years of experience working in the catering industry and as a restauranteur. Ann lives at Woodbridge and all Tassie Taste Bud products are made on-site in a purpose built premises. All products are based on what is able to be sourced locally. Anne loves to ‘raid’ people’s gardens for their excess produce. She started off with a large range of products, gradually condensing them down to those that are most popular. Tassie Taste Bud’s range include jams, jellies, fruit pastes, chutneys as well as some not so usual products like pickled walnuts and horseradish mustard.
Ann grows many food items herself, with all the rhubarb and horseradish in her products coming from her garden. Fruit from her thornless blackberries and mountain pepper bushes go into her products and plums come from the neighbour’s garden. Pears, apples and quinces are sourced from local orchards. Pinot noir grapes come from Meadowbank and peaches, beetroot, onion are all Tasmanian grown.
