    Wow, super yum!! Great way to use up the 2 oranges I had. Also added the last of the grated fresh ginger and two cloves of garlic (also grated) and just came out yummy with a little zing from the garlic and ginger along with fresh pepper! My new fave way to eat my beets! LOL! Thanks!! ;-D

    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!

    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!!!

    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 Recipe #18410 for the batter and Recipe #48029 for the seasoning. it was my favorite lunch i've had in a long time. thanks so much!!
