If all else fails, you can use the beets to make Polish borscht soup.

you have a recipe?

I had some beets from the polish restaurant, I swear she put some horseradish in them and they
were warm, I never had them this way, we always had pickled beets at the table but not warm cooked
beets,, they were awsome, and now I am having cravings..with some hot mashed potatos, and golubki or
chicken or whatever,, and nice salad.. omg.. who says polish food is bad, I will smack them with a golubki!!

lol !!!

Par boil the washed beetroot (save the small leaves) leave to cool. Wrap in tinfoil and bake in the oven until tender. Serve on a salad of beet leaves and other leafy salad with goat’s cheese.

For a more agricultural take use larger beetroot and roast on a tray with honey.

Beetroot is naturally sweet so goes well with cheese.

I love the smell of root vegetables in the morning.....

warm cooked
beets,,

you need to add finely chopped onion and some sugar - you boil beetroots first (I guess in well salted water), then you grate'em, add chopped onion, sugar and black pepper to taste and fry it on cooking oil in a covered pan until the taste of onion permeates the whole dish (don't add too much sugar though) there should be quite a lot of onion

as for warm beetroots with horseradish - I don't know - ćwikła z chrzanem is usually served cool

I've forgotten about vinegar - you need to add some vinegar - but not really much - I would start with half a table spoon - my mom always used clear white vinegar (ocet spirytusowy - the cheapest stuff in POland) - I think aromatic vinegars will spoil the dish as it's taste is pretty subtle - maybe a plain white wine vinegar would be all right - I don't know

I've forgotten about vinegar - you need to add some vinegar - but not really much

oh, well - you could use lemon juice or citric acid instead of vinegar too - maybe it's even actually tastier then

I appreciate it Gumishu :) I can say I didnt think I would like them this way, but I love them, I have always loved
pickled beets, its always been on the table growing up..and we just at them cold with salads, or by themself along
with our other veggies, other kids would come over and say Ewww you have beets, yuck!

I always say dont knock it till you try it.. I managed to get my hubby hooked on beets, I can hardly keep them in the

fridge.. that along with my brothers coming over to clean my fridge out.. lol.

I will be making this, TY :)

I love beetroots - and the boiled or stewed beetroots are so good for your health (and I think actually better than pickled - though pickled beetroots surely have their merits too) - they are full of iron for example - they are excellent in detoxicating liver - you just feel better when you consume them

and as for the recipe - you should also add some water (a quarter of a drinking glass per typical pan I think) aside of oil - otherwise they will get too dry and the taste of onion will not go through the whole dish that well

Even kaszanka?

I know you US-sters and your irrational fear of the dirty European blood sausage ; )

Delicious!

Buraczka Smazona. I like the way they just chop them and fry them. Like Gumishu I would add vinegar - but not much.
