A wonderful beet preparation! The flavors are perfect. I roasted my beets by wrapping the cleaned and trimmed beets in foil --no oil and no seasoning. The skins just slipped off after roasting.

Delicious. I didn't have cider vinegar, so used balsamic. I also left out the bay leaf. Once the syrup was done, I fished out the cloves and dumped it, ginger and all, over the beets. I tried a couple while warm. Outstanding! Could certainly be a warm side dish as well as cold.
