Method

  1. The day before, cut each beetroot into quarters, tip into a saucepan and spoon in the redcurrant jelly and vinegar. Bring to the boil over a high heat and simmer for about 10 minutes until the beetroot is well coated. Transfer to a bowl and leave to cool, then cover and keep in the fridge.
  2. About an hour before serving, remove the beetroot and sauce from the fridge and let it come to room temperature.
  3. To serve, spoon the beetroot and sauce on to 6 serving plates. Top with a little pile of watercress, crumble over the goat’s cheese and top with the anchovies. Season with salt and ground black pepper and drizzle over the oil. Put a lemon wedge on each plate for squeezing, and serve with soda bread on the side.

This is fantastic - stunning to look at and tastes divine, fresh and flavourful. Willd definitely make this again but would try with wild rocket to give it a bit more of a kick.
