Beet Recipe from Katie

Does anyone have beets left?  I do!  This recipe from Katie sounds really intriguing with prunes and pineapple in a beet puree.  Thank you for sending this in Katie.

From the New Moosewood Cookbook

I tried a recipe from The New Moosewood Cookbook tonight that I just had to share because it is out of this world!  It sounds a little weird, but believe me it’s wonderful.  (For all those CSA members who still have lots of beets left…)

5-6 medium beets (2 to 2 1/2 inches in diameter)
2 to 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
8 to 10 prunes, pitted and thinly sliced
2 to 3 medium garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp sea salt
black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup finely chopped pineapple (fresh or canned in juice)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Wrap the beets in foil and bake until tender, about 40-45 minutes.  Rinse under cold running water as you rub off the skins.  Trim the ends and coarsely grate.  (A food processor fitted with the grating attachment does this easily.)  Transfer to a medium-sized bowl.

Add all remaining ingredients and mix well.  Chill until serving time.
