What a tasty and easy way to make beets! The hint of ginger was a very nice. Made as written, beets were not fork tender at 45 minutes and did roast another 20 minutes before glazing, will be making these again. Thanks for the post.

Excellent recipe! The only thing I did differently was to put the pan back into the oven in step 6 - I had the time (15 - 20 minutes) but not the burner space! Delicious & everyone loved these. Made with the last of my farmstand beets from Maine. *sniff* Made for the Aussie Swap 10/08.

I had already roasted some beets, so made the sauce and glazed the beets with it. Delicious way to eat beets. Thanks Syd! Made for the PRMR game.
