Beets 2 Pound
Sour cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Sugar 1 Tablespoon
Ground black pepper 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Dill 1 Teaspoon


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Wrap eat beat in foil, and place on a baking sheet. Bake the beets for 35-45 minutes or until fork tender. If your beets are on the larger side they may take longer to bake. When beets have cooled enough to handle unwrap from foil packets and gently push off the skin of the beet. Slide beets into 1/4 inch slices.

Prepare sour cream sauce by combining 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 cup of sour cream together in a bowl, mix well. Add in beets and fold into the sour cream sauce. Season with black pepper, salt, and dill. You may want to garnish with dill before serving.
