Peel beets and cut in large strips before you bake them in the oven with app. 1 cup of water. Check after an hour if they are soft inside out. Let them cool at least two hours.
Put cooked beets in a food processor and add olive oil, vinegar, the piece of ginger,
cardamom, peel and juice of ½ a lemon, ketchup and honey. Also add salt & pepper generously. Use the honey and lemon or vinegar to get a taste you like – it’s about
finding the balance.
Keep processing until smooth and creamy. Serve cool
Oh - and if you are not used to cooking with beets remember gloves for peeling and a wet cloth to wipe stains off wooden table tops.
