Beetroot has a way of staining everything red, if you are not careful. When peeling beetroot, I like to wear plastic or surgical gloves, or even dishwashing gloves will prevent you from looking a bit Lady Macbeth. I even have a cheap wooden board specifically for cutting beetroot (which I also use for other veges) as the red juices will leave an almost permanent stain.
All recipes on this website state temperatures for a regular oven (i.e. a conventional oven without fan). If you have a convection oven with a fan, please consult the manufacturer’s handbook on how to adjust the temperature and baking time accordingly.
