A different way to serve beets. If you would like to try making your own mint jelly try this recipe Old Fashion Apple-Mint Jelly. The honey in this mint jelly goes well with the beets in this recipe.
- Pare beets and cut into cubes.
- Bring salted water to a boil and add beets, reduce heat and simmer for about 40 minutes or until tender.
- Drain beets and add butter and jelly, continue cooking until beets are glazed.
wonderful!! I used organic striped beets which aren't as red as most, but very sweet. The mint jelly was great with them, even though i think i might try mint sauce as well to balance the sweetness depending on my main course. I also discovered that microwaving works as well for beets as for potatoe's and you don't get the "bleed" of color and flavor that happens in water.
