Beets in Orange/apricot Sauce

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 20 mins

We love beets...DH doesn't really care for sweet vegies..but I love them!! This is one I throw together..I save 1/2 lb plain for DH...and this is what I do to mine


  1. Cook the beets until tender in boiling salted water, drain, slip the beet skins off with your fingers.
  2. Zest and segment the orange, remove the pith and seeds.
  3. In a small sauce pan heat the apricot preserves and mix in the orange segments with the liqueur, simmer for a couple of minutes.
  4. Place the beets in a serving dish, smother with sauce and garnish with orange zest.
  5. This actually is plenty for 2 -- I generally freeze half.

OH MY GOSH IS THIS GOOD! I made it for Thanksgiving and my family (15 people) devoured it. Even the non-beet eaters. My mom didn't care for the sauce, but she's the only one out of 16, so I'm going to consider this a huge success.

A delicious treat! I ended up using apricot pineapple preserves. Yum! Thanks! I made this for the German Preserve Challenge for the World Tour!
