Fried Beetroot

(A Breakfast Dish.)

1 medium-sized beet. 2 ounces butter for frying. 1 teaspoon salt. ½ teaspoon pepper. 2 teaspoons flour. 2 tablespoons vinegar. 1 tablespoon water.

Peel the beetroot, and cut into slices about a quarter of an inch thick. Dissolve the butter in a frying pan, place in the beetroot and fry for twenty minutes, sprinkling each slice on both sides with the pepper and salt. When done, arrange the slices on a hot dish. Reset the frying pan on the fire, stir in the flour, thoroughly mixing it with the butter, and fry for a couple of minutes, stirring all the time, then pour in the water and vinegar, stir until quite smooth; pour over the beetroot and serve quickly.
