Lovely side dish! I used my canned beets, so I had this done really quick. The orange is a VERY good compliment to the beets. I added 1 teaspoon sugar to get a sweet tart taste. I used toasted sliced almonds. Thanks for posting this!

We love beets and this is a good recipe. I peeled the beets before cooking them, they were very large beets and would have taken forever to cook.. I left out the almonds it would have been a nice final touch (Iforgot to buy them) Thanks Dorothy for another winner

Oooh, this is so delicious! I've made it over and over again, sometimes topped with chopped pecans, or walnuts, but I love to use pistachios the most of all, the deep red really sets off the bright green of the chopped nuts... Yum!!!

This is a delicious dish! Clementines have been on sale here, so I had a huge box of them to use. Instead of the orange called for in the recipe, I used three clementines. Two were cut up in chunks over the pot (using all the juice), while I squeezed the juice from the third. Other than that, I made the recipe as written. Thank you, Derf, for another winner!

delicious!! this was my first attempt at making beets, and they were just lovely! a little dangerous - everything i touch is now fuchsia - but sooo tasty! i saved the greens and made crepes using Crepes for the batter and Beet Greens with Beets for the seasoning. it was my favorite lunch i've had in a long time. thanks so much!!

Ahhh, this was just great. Perfect sauce. Easy recipe to follow. Easy recipe to make. Just because of laziness, I didn't put the almonds, but it could have only made this better. Definitely a keeper.

very nice. i've never cooked beets before (but im a big fan of my nanna's pickled beets :) ) and i was very happy with the results. i baked my beets at 450°F. covered with foil for about an hour and then took off the skins and sliced them up. i didn't have any orange rind and skipped the almonds, but it was still very nice. the orange flavour came through nicely. thanks derf :)
