Method

Perheat Oven to 180C/gas 4. rub the insides of an oven proof dish with the cut sides of the garlic, then grease it with butter

Slice potatoes very thinly, I used a food processor blade which did the job in seconds

The beetroot had previously been cooked and I had done as the recipe had suggested and roasted in the oven covered in sea salt wrapped in foil and baked until tender, left to cool then peeled the skin, these were then sliced at around 5 mm thickness a little thicker than the potato.

Starting with the potato Layer the potatoes then the beetroot in alternate layers leaving the even pieces of potato for the top finished layer, seasoning each layer as you go  with salt and pepper.

Heat up the cream over a gentle heat until hot ( not boiling ) and pour over the dish of prepared layers and finish off with more seasoning.

Pour Cream over layers then place into preheated oven

Bake for 1 hour or until potatoes are cooked, if you find the top is going too brown towards the end of cooking time, cover with foil to stop it browning too quickly..

Serve warm. It was delicious … And ALL Home Grown
