I think I should blanche/boil them first - how long should they be boiled for?

Aha, 50 minutes says BBC. Cor, will be toiling over stove for some time I fear.

Depends on size - mine took anywhere from 1 hour to 2 1/2 hours. Then I cooled them, sliced them and froze them. Have also pickled lots and frozen lots as soup!

beetroot carrot, but use beetroot instead of carrot. freezes really well.can't taste the beetroot, and it comes out pink.

just grate them raw into the mix,don't cook them first

Eco, thanks for that. I am lacking pickling jars, or soup containers for that matter, so I think they're just going into freezer bags til I can afford a Lakeland order.

TLK, beetroot cake sounds great, especially the pink bit - 3 girls here.
