  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.
  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.
  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.

really great. i boiled the beets in their skins to retain max flavor. after boiling, the skins slide right off.

Adult baby food; I liked the flavor, loved the color, but my fiance would not touch it........don't try this with a traditional beet lover!!

Remember, when working with beets, they stain big time -- I use latex gloves when handling them and never cut them on a wooden cutting board -- use a plastic one or paper plates

zingy, and easy.. if you like beets, great side dish, the crowds loved it, great way to get some colour on the plate..

Very good flavor, but strong- and like others said, it is kind of a baby food texture. Because of that, I think it's almost more of a condiment than a side (maybe that's what it's supposed to be). I could see this having a place on a gourmet plate of food, you know, when they stack a filet mignon & mashed potatoes and maybe asparagus and some sauce or garnish to look real pretty.....I think this would fit right into a meal like that.

You have to like both beets and horseradish to enjoy this dish. Hubby loves horseradish but is not a beets fan. I like beets just fine, but don't love horseradish. I can't even eat it because the horseradish is too strong for me. Hubby will only eat it in small amounts because the beet taste is too strong for him.
