Creamy Beets

Patty Jablonowski


This was a favorite of my husband's family. I believe it is a Polish recipe.
Use caution when working with beets as beet juice will stain almost anything.

15 Min


30 Min


1 bunch
red beets
3 Tbsp
vinegar (i prefer apple cider flavored)
3 Tbsp
granulated sugar (to taste)
salt and pepper to taste
1 c
sour cream (may use low fat, not fat free)

Directions Step-By-Step

Peel beets. Shred using the coarse side of a box grater, or the shredding disk of a food processor.
Put beets in a sauce pan. Add water to just reach the top of the beets. Simmer until beets are tender and liquid is almost all gone (should take 20 - 25 minutes). Add salt, pepper, vinegar and sugar. Cook 2-3 minutes to dissolve sugar. Add sour cream. Allow mixture to warm-up, but do not boil as sour cream will break.
Taste and adjust seasonings. May serve hot, at room temperature, or slightly chilled. Keeps for 2-3 days in the refrigerator
