Berry and Beet Sauce

Makes 2 cups


  • 1 medium beet (raw)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups frozen berries (any kind)
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. fine sea salt


  1. Wash, trim, and peel the beet. Then grate it using a microplane or box grater into a small sauce pan.
  2. Place pan on the stove. Add in the water, stir and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Turn the heat down to low, and continue simmering for 2 more minutes. The mixture should look bubbly and a little foamy.
  3. Add in berries, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt. Stir. Simmer for 5 minutes while occasionally smashing the berries with the back of a spoon. Use immediately or store for future recipes.
