Beets rolled in Horseradish Butter
Red beets work especially well in this easy to prepare side dish, with a subtle hint of horseradish.
Scrub 12 red beets and cook 30 minutes in lightly salted boiling water, or bake until tender. Rinse under cool water and slip off the skins. Melt 2 tbsp butter in a saucepan over medium heat, add 1 tbsp freshly grated horseradish root and 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar. Add the cooked beets, stir gently to coat with the butter. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Serve hot.
