"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous
6 medium beets 1/2 C sugar 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 C vinegar 2 Tablespoons butter
Cook beets in boiling water until tender. Skin them and cut into thin slices or cubes. Mix sugar, cornstarch, salt and vinegar in a sauce pan and boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the butter and pour over beets. Let stand a few minutes to absorb the sweet and sour flavor of the sauce.
