    1. 1
      Cook the beets until tender in boiling salted water, drain, slip the beet skins off with your fingers.
    2. 2
      Zest and segment the orange, remove the pith and seeds.
    3. 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. 4
      Place the beets in a serving dish, smother with sauce and garnish with orange zest.
    5. 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!
