Balsamic-Honey Beets

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by GT in SA

A wonderful fusion of flavours. Goes well with most any dish but especially good with full-bodied meats. Pre-cook beets in their skins by baking in foil at 200 Celsius for 1 hour. Alternatively, autocook without added moisture in microwave. preparation time does not include pre-cooking.

Delicious. Even the non-beet eater liked them. Great flavors from the honey and balsamic. Will be making these again. I steamed the greens and drizzled some of the sauce on them also. Made for the Think Pink 2011 game.
