    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These are pretty much like Harvard beets, you can use canned beets slices (use one can) for this, or fresh cooked beets, I prefer the fresh cooked! also adjust the sugar to taste. You can double this recipe if desired, don't omit the orange zest, it really adds a kick to the beets!

    1. 1
      In a bowl mix together the sugar, cornstarch and salt; stir in a little of the wine or vinegar to make a smooth paste.
    2. 2
      Slowly drizzle in the remaining wine or vinegar and the water (adding all the liquid at once can produce lumps in the cornstarch).
    3. 3
      Transfer the mixture to a saucepan; cook over low heat stirring and scraping bottom of the pan often.
    4. 4
      Cook until liquid is clear (about 5 minutes).

      Stir in cooked beets, butter and orange zest; stir until the beets are heated through.
    6. 6
      Season with black pepper is desired.

      LOVE this recipe! So Delicious! I did omit the orange since I didn't have any on hand, doubled the sauce as well as used fresh organic beets. NO HFCS like the jarred shelved kind! Thank You:)

      Best sweet & sour beet recipe I have ever tasted!
      You do not want to leave out the orange zest. This
      is a simple & amazing recipe. I used fresh baby beets from our garden.

      Pretty much a good Harvard recipe. Quick, easy and tastes great. I took the orange one more step and used orange juice for the water. Used fresh beets that I then diced as per DH's preference. Yummm
