I used to work in a supermarket and anytime I had to scan through some vacpac beetroot I'd always end up with sticky purple fingers - nightmare

I open it in the sink too. There is no other way. It is really tasty but so messy!

One of the many reasons beetroot is not permitted across my threshold.

DH grew it on the allotment last year. I nearly divorced him.

Buy them fresh, roast them whole in the oven and just peel them.If you wear gloves you can just peel the skin off.

Like mango, eat naked pref already in the bath?

Know what you mean though, I've started getting the juice instead it's more containable.

Do once. Are home very drunk and ate an entire packet.

The next morning he had forgotten and thought he was dying when he went to have a wee! #karma

Open corner at the sink, drain, rinse sink, put beetroot into bowl.

What are the little blue boxes? 🤔

I feel your pain OP. Open and eat it over the sink!

Cut the end off in the sink. Drain out the juice. Cut down a side. Tip into a plastic tub. Done!

I love beetroot, and it's supposed to be a super food so I try to eat it when I can. Today however I'm sitting here staring at the unopened packaging because I can't face the mess it makes. Looks like someone's slaughtered a pig in the kitchen by the time I've finished wrestling with the bastard.

AIBU?
