If our Dear Lord had thought beets and booze went together there would be a beet booze.
Is there? No! Proof....
There's liquor flavored like apples, cherries, peppermint, cinnamon, oranges, walnuts(?), vanilla, Red Square sweepings, and burnt corn poured through burn maple... but there is no booze that sports a beet on the label.
I rest my case.
It’s never before crossed my mind, but I am willing to give “it a shot.”
I’ll let you know!
SUGAR BEET LIQUOR
Slice thin or mince into a kettle 10 pounds of sugar beets.
Add just enough water to cover and bring to a boil.
Simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain off this liquid and retain. Retain the pulp.
Repeat the previous three steps to the pulp. Discard the pulp. (Give it to the bunnies.)
Combine the liquids and simmer until the steam no longer has a rank odor.
If the liquid is less than a gallon, add water to make it so. If it’s more than a gallon, boil it off till it is.
Cool to below 110°F, and add one package Fleischmann’s yeast.
