    1. 1
      *Note: I used small spring beets which means they were not peeled. I also did not cut the beets into chunks but in half due to their size.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a roasting pan with parchment paper.
    3. 3
      Combine the beets, oil, salt, anise seeds, cinnamon stick pieces, orange juice and pomegranate molasses in the pan, tossing to coat the beets evenly.
    4. 4
      Spread the beets in a single layer and roast for about 45 minutes, shaking the pan a few times to roast the beets evenly and roasting the beets until they are fork-tender.
    5. 5
      Discard the cinnamon stick pieces.
    6. 6
      Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with orange zest (and minced fresh herb of choice if using).
    7. 7
      Serve warm.

      This recipe was delightful! I couldn't find any baby beets, only mutant sized ones,so I only bought one, which I cut into smaller cubes. I was surprised how the flavors of the anise and OJ enhanced the sweetness of the beets and didn't over power their flavor. I scaled this down for one, as DH does not eat beets. In addition I omitted the pomegranate molasses, only because I could not find it any where plus I garnished it with mint from my garden. Made for NA*ME tag.
