Ginny, I'm giving your recipe 4 **** because I really enjoyed the flavor. As I was cooking the sauce, I tasted some and thought, "MMMMM, that's good!!!!" I loved having the mandarin sections in there too! I even halved the recipe because I only had one can of beets (but I did stick with one whole can of oranges.)Unfortunately, I couldn't change the opinion of my family on beets, but let it be known, that I thought there were yummy and I'd make them again! :)
