Honey-Ginger Baked Beets created by Mia in Germany

A nice side dish for a roast chicken. Can be done a day ahead except for baking. Cover and refrigerate. The next day, bring to room temperature and bake as directed.

Units:

ingredients

  • 8 medium beets (about 2 lbs)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons honey (fireweed or sage honey are good)
  • 12 teaspoon ground ginger
  • salt and pepper, to taste

directions

  • Scrub beets but do not peel.
  • Place beets in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 40 minutes, or until just tender. Drain.
  • When cool enough to handle, peel beets, cut into quarters and place them in a oven-proof casserole dish, with a lid.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350ºF.
  • In small saucepan, melt butter and mix in honey and ginger. Season with salt and pepper and pour over beets.
  • Cover with lid and bake 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beets are well glazed.

    I really liked the flavour of these beets, although I will probably add more ginger next time. I baked the beets instead of boiling them and then baked them further with the glaze. Very sweet and tasty, thank you :)

    Followed the recipe to the T, except that I added bacon, which I cooked first then added to the sauce before baking, and added pecans right when I took it out of the oven. Although it turned out wonderful, in hind sight I would have added the bacon at the same time as the pecans, right after baking.

    Wonderful recipe! Made exactly as written except that I buyed precooked beets (not pickled! just boiled) because I didn't find fresh ones. Thanks for posting this keeper!<br/>Made for A Rainbow of Colours of the Diabetes Forum.
