I'm adding another review because I accidentally hit "add" without describing. We had this hot with a dollop of sour cream. I completely adored it - and I despise beets! I'll make this again next fall, when we have a variety of types of fresh beets. Even a couple of my kids said it was excellent (except for the really fussy one) ;)

I made this with 6 beets, 2 onions, and equivalent ratio of water. It was very red and good. liked it cold with added garlic
