   Cousin Walter and those who dined with him looked
   forward to this well-chilled light beet soup on warm
   days.  Milk, plain yogurt, or a combination of the two
   can be used instead of buttermilk.
   ~------------------------------------------------------
   ~----------------- Melt the butter in a medium
   saucepan.  Add the onions and celery, and saute over
   medium heat for 10 minutes, or until the celery is
   soft and golden. Add the celery leaves and cook for 2
   minutes longer.  Add the remaining ingredients except
   the buttermilk and dill.  Bring to a boil, lower the
   heat and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the beets are
   tender. Cool. Stir in the buttermilk and dill.  Chill
   thoroughly.  From: The Tabasco Cookbook. Typed by Syd
