Freshly boiled beets with a sweet and tangy sauce Freshly boiled beets with a sweet and tangy sauce
Number of Servings: 10


    1 bunch beets (I use 5 smallish ones)
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 tsp corn starch
    1/4 cup white or cider vinegar
    1 TBS butter (1 TBS oil can be substituted here).


Boil beets until tender. Let cool, peel and slice into rounds or cut into cubes.

Mix the sugar, salt, vinegar, and corn starch in a small frying pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and mix in the butter.

Pour over the beets. Serve immediately or put in the fridge for later.

I tried using light olive oil when I was out of butter, and it was almost as good (still very tasty)!

If you've never cared for beets, this recipe will change your mind! It's addicting!

Makes 10 1/2-cup servings.
