Recipe: Beets with Sour Dressing

To give variety, beets are sometimes served with a sour Dressing. Probably no other vegetable lends itself so well to this sort of preparation as beets, with the result that a very appetizing dish is provided.

(Sufficient to Serve Six)

  •  6 medium-sized beets
  •  2 Tb. butter
  •  2 Tb. flour
  •  1 tsp. salt
  •  1/8 tsp. pepper
  •  1/4 c. vinegar
  •  1-1/4 c. hot water

Prepare and cook the beets.. When tender, drain them, remove the skins, and dice the beets. Make a Sauce by melting the butter in a double boiler and adding the flour, salt, pepper, vinegar, and hot water. Cook until the flour thickens the Sauce and then pour over the beets. Heat together and serve.
