Beet, Lemon, and Ginger Marmalade

from Mollie Katzen's Sunlight Cafe by Mollie Katzen (Hyperion). If you do not like beets, this will make a believer of you. If you do like beets, you will be in ecstasy. This delicious marmalade is sweetened with honey and flavored with ginger. It is very quick and simple to make and makes a great condiment for any savory dish.
  • 1 pound cooked beets
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons light honey
  • 2 to 3 Tablespoons chopped lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup crystallized ginger

Peel and coarsely grate or mince the beets, and transfer to a medium-sized bowl. Add salt, lemon juice, honey, lemon zest, and ginger. Mix thoroughly. Transfer to a tightly capped jar. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks. Serve cold. Use this marmalade with any savory dish.
