Although the sauce rarely thickens, this is a wonderfully creamy dish to eat with roast beef or game. It would be very especially suitable for roast pigeon, the sweet cream in contrast to the gamey notes of the meat.
Serves 4 as an accompaniment
750g large beetroot
A medium onion
250ml double cream
50ml full cream milk
A teaspoon of caraway (optional)
