    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    My mother served this for a Thanksgiving lunch. I admit, I was a little dubious about it at first, since beets have never been my favourite vegetable. (Once upon a time they were my absolutely least-liked food, but I've seen at least a glimmer of the light.) Anyway, this soup was delicious! Just wonderful! I made sure to get the recipe from her before heading home. (She adapted the recipe from Gourmet Magazine.)Note: the celery can be replaced with peeled, chopped celery root.

      I have one major complaint about this recipe! I can't stop eating it! I pour out a cup for lunch, dinner, snacks and yes...for breakfast, too! The first batch, I pureed really smooth...the second, I left a little "rough" and found that I liked the texture. The recipe freezes beautifully. Haven't tried it warm yet, but sure that it will be de-lish. Okay, you may have to like beets but try this anyway. Cooking the beets with the sugar and vinager adds an ever so slight "sweet and sour" element. I get beets in the front of my mouth and celery in the back...Hope you will, too! Not a huge fan of plain yogart...but I will be brave and give it a shot...Such Fun!

      Thanks to Jenny and her Mom!
