Puree of Fresh Beets with Horseradish Recipe
- 8 medium beets
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
- salt and pepper to taste
step 1: Trim, wash, peel and dice the beets. Place in a medium saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer until beets are tender. Drain.
step 2: Place beets in a blender or food processor. Add the butter, cream, sugar, lemon juice, horseradish and salt and pepper. Puree until smooth and strain puree through a sieve into saucepan.
step 3: Gently reheat over very low heat, stirring frequently to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Spoon the puree onto serving plates and garnish with a sprig of dill and a few pink peppercorns.
