  • 3 red beets
  • 3 golden beets
  • 1/4 tsp Cloves


  • Trim and wash beets to get all of the dirt off.
  • In a medium saucepan, add the whole beets and fill with enough water to cover the beets. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 45 minutes or until tender when pricked with a fork. Drain the beets and let cool slightly.
  • On a cutting board, cut off the hard tops and remove skins (they should easily slide off), and roughly chop.
  • Transfer the beets to a blender or food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes or until completely smooth, adding water in 1/4 cup increments if needed.
