Notes

To make beet puree:
Roast beets in oven by cleaning them and wrapping them individually in foil. Bake on baking sheet for 45 minutes or until they are soft when a fork is inserted. Cool.
Use a food processor or blender to puree the beets, adding a bit of water or juice to help aid their mixing. Usually about 1/2 teaspoon of liquid per beet.
