Footnote: Use eggs and beet-root puree at room temperature. This recipe is the most enjoyable method of eating beet-root. It gives an incredible red color, you don't need to use chemical colorings. It also contains high amount of fiber, folic acid, manganese and potassium.
Tips: Cook pancakes over low heat. You can decrease or increase the amount of sugar up to your taste. You can store the remaining beet-root puree in a closed jar in deep freeze up to 3 months. I boiled 6-7 beet-root and store the remaining puree.
