We're preparing rib-sticking Eastern European Jewish food this month: Cholent (Beef stew, with a vegetarian version, of course), Kasha, Pickled Beets, Potato Kugel, and Babka cake for dessert.

And here's one of Devra Gartenstein's recipes from this month's Feast.

Pickled Beets
Yield: 6 servings

6 medium-size beets
water to cover
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste
1/4 cup water
2 to 3 tablespoons white vinegar

Cover the beets with the water in a medium-size saucepan and bring them to a boil. Cook on medium heat for 45 minutes to an hour or until you can rub off the skins with your fingers. (To test one, fish it out of the pot with a pair of tongs and run it under cold water for a minute until it=s cool enough to handle.)

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a small saucepan. Add the onion, dill, salt and pepper and cook for about 5 minutes, until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the water and vinegar, bring to a boil, then simmer for another 5 minutes.

Peel and chop the beets, then toss them with the sauce. Cool and serve. It will keep in the refrigerator for over a week.
