These beetroots are the perfect side dish to any meal. Beetroots are simmered in a mixture of sugar, cornflour, vinegar and water. Serve warm or chilled with whatever you fancy.
I made this almost exactly as the recipe except I used fresh beetroot so simmered it a bit longer. It was a bit sweet for my liking so next time (yes, I'll make it again) I'll only use 100g sugar. It went really nicely with roast pork. - 04 Oct 2016
Outstanding! Family loved them, no leftovers! Bought some fresh beets today and came home and went to All Recipes for some ideas on what to do with them. Tried this recipe,cut back to 1/3 cup sugar and threw in some cloves and cinnamon as I remembered those flavors from my mother's beets. This is a keeper. - 23 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I used this for fresh beets. Peel and cut 6 medium beets and steam in a steamer basket for 25 min. Reserve 2T of the red water and add to a 4 cup glass measure combine 1/4 C sugar, 2 tsp cornstarch, 2T cider vinegar and cook in microwave for 2 min. Whisk in 3T melted butter and cook in microwave 1 more minute. Add beets to 2.5 qt casserole and pour sauce on top. Good hot or cold. - 10 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
