I love beets and this is my favorite way of cooking them.
- 2 (15 ounce) canswhole beets, quartered
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1⁄2 cup vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- Drain beets, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. In a medium saucepan combine sugar and cornstarch; mix well. Gradually stir in reserved beet juice, vinegar, and salt; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer 2 minutes. Add beets; simmer on low, stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes. Before serving, add butter, and bring just to boiling.
Haven't had beets like this since I was a kid. The sauce just makes the beets. My husband who doesn't usually like beets, but he really liked these.
