Beets. Glorious Beets. Golden like sunshine and deep red to stain your fingers and your lips.

This process is a bit entailed but it's fun to do. The flavors from the salt and horseradish are subtle but definitely there. I combined two recipes and just kind of went with it. The main difference was one used an egg white in the salt mixture. I found this helped the salt adhere to the beet and make a nice crust. Check out one recipe at epicurious. Definitely make the horseradish creme fraiche. Have your sliced beets over a nice butter lettuce salad drizzled with the dressing. Yum!
