      This is a lovely beet dish, and we loved the maple syrup! I kept them warm in a low temp oven covered until ready to serve. Sorry for such a poor pic, beets are hard to photograph! lol

      These tasted great, and were a fantastic way to use up the beets in our organic box (it's the middle of winter here so the local seasonal produce isn't as diverse as it is in summer). I love balsamic & mustard, the maple syrup just took these to a whole new level. These are lovely with a bit of feta crumbled over the top, which is what I did. Thanks for posting, made for ZWT4.

      These were wonderful and unique. The maple really gives the beets a delicious flavor. Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
