2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 baking potatoes skin on, scrubbed
2 cups plain non-fat yogurt


Put beets in large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to boil, cover, and continue cooking about 35 minutes or until beets are done.

Spoon beets into saucepan. Mix in 1 quart water, sugar, vinegar, and pepper. Bring mixture to boil; reduce heat to simmer. Continue cooking 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool, pour soup into covered container, and chill several hours before serving.

Scrub potatoes and prick several times with sharp point of knife. Place potatoes on baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees for 1 hour or until potato is fork tender.
