I am not a fan of beets, that being said my husband and stepdaughter are. We bought fresh beets at the farmers market and I made this recipe, slicing instead of chopping the beets and they LOVED it!
These were fantastic and were just what I was looking for! They were so easy and had a perfect balance between sweet and tart. (5)
I made this recipe as did Paula G. It is a great side dish.
I love beets, but my DH is NOT a fan. Since I made these he has requested them TWICE. I used Splenda and raspberry balsamic and they were great!
You are so right--fresh beets are the only way to go. I made this using Splenda in place of the sugar and as CookinCowGirl suggested, balsamic vinegar instead of the cider. I didn't realize until I was writing the review but I left off the butter. We didn't miss it. The sauce is rich and sweet with a mild vinegar taste. Definately a winning recipe.
I tried this recipe as written (I love beets). Yum. Then I substituted balsamic vinegar for a second batch. Equally good! Thanks for the recipe.
