Baked beets with caraway, balcamico and fromage frais from Oslofjord, Norway

Baked beets with caraway, balcamico and fromage frais

Sprinkle salt over the beets and put them in the oven at 175 degrees. Let stand about 1 hour, they must be completely tender. When you can stick a knife through them without resistance, they are ready. Let them cool down for a while. Remove the skin with a knife. Boil down the balcamico together with 1 decilitre water, onion, caraway and thyme to approx ½ decilitre left. Add beets up in conjunction with the butter and simmer for 5 minutes without boiling. Stir fromage frais with thyme and cream, season with salt and pepper.
