    magpie diner's Note:

    Posting this for ZWT - it's from an old German cookbook. I look forward to trying this with beets fresh from the garden. You can use fresh horseradish if you which case just use 1 tsp grated. Note that this needs to sit for a day before serving, not included in the prep time.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cut the tops off the beets, leaving about 1" of the stem intact. Scrub the beets well then add them to a large pot with enough cold water to cover them by about 2". Add 1 tsp of the salt and bring to a boil. Once the boiling point is reached, reduce heat to low and cover the pot. Simmer until the beets show little resistance when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife. This may only take 30 minutes for young beets, much longer for more mature ones. Keep them consistently covered with water.
    2. 2
      Once cooked, drain the beets, reserving a small amount of the cooking liquid (about 1/4 cup). (You may or may not need this later on, so don't worry if you forget).
    3. 3
      When the beets are cool enough to handle, slip off the skins and then cut them crosswise into 1/8" slices. Place them in a deep glass or ceramic bowl.
    4. 4
      In a medium saucepan bring the red wine, vinegar, onion, cloves, coriander, peppercorns and remaining 1 tsp of salt to a boil. Immediately pour over the beets. It should cover them, if not, add more wine.
    5. 5
      Cool to room temperature then cover well and refrigerate for at least 24 hours.
    6. 6
      Before serving discard the whole cloves and peppercorns. Beat the olive oil and horseradish together in a small bowl and add to the beets. Mix gently but thoroughly. If you think the sauce is going to be too thick, you can now use that reserved cooking liquid to thin things down (beat in with the olive oil and horseradish), or use a bit of plain water.

      Enjoyed these! I must say I liked better before adding the oil. Thanks!

      What a fun way to do beets! I knew they would be a winner because of the cloves and horseradish in the recipe. These will certainly be made again. THANKS!
