    Serves: 4 

    • 900g beetroots, peeled and sliced
    • 3 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar
    • 3 tablespoons vinegar
    • 4 tablespoons water
    • 1 tablespoon cornflour
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 30g butter

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Place the beetroots into a large saucepan. Pour in enough water to cover the beetroots by 2.5cm. Bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the beetroots are easily pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes; drain.
    2. Whisk together the dark brown soft sugar, vinegar, water, cornflour, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in a saucepan. Add the beetroots and the butter, turn the heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to the boil. Cook until the sauce thickens slightly, about a minute or two. Serve beetroots hot or cold.

    I made these for thanksgiving and they were a huge hit! My husband and I love beets but i have never had them prepared like this before, but i loved the apple, and the holiday spicing was wonderful! Just the right amount of spicy and sweet. I will definitely make this again and again!  -  25 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Freezing ahead of time was the initial appeal for me, but these were really good using fresh beets, and I wanted you to know that I used Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and it was still great. Looking forward to just thawing and serving this at holiday time!  -  18 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
