Step 1

Cut off the beet tops while leaving 2 inches of the stem. Clean the beets well, then place in a pot and cover with boiling water. Cook the beets until they are soft, 20-30 minutes.

Step 2

Remove from the pan and slide off the outer beet skins. Then dice the beets. Strain the water the beets were cooked in and reserve 1 cup.

Step 3

Add butter, sugar, and vinegar to the beet water. Thicken with 1 tablespoon of the cornstarch and then cook to the thickness of cream.

Step 4

Add in the diced beets, pepper, and salt and heat through.
