Beets with Orange Sauce

Beets with Orange Sauce


Beets. With a thick orange sauce on them. Yummmm. Or not.

I like beets either pickled or roasted. I guess I’m a bit of a beet purist. My folks grew a variety of vegetables when I was growing up and beets were one of them – carrots, chard, spinach, onions, etc. Anyway, my mother would pickle the beets, and maybe because they were home made, or even I just happened to like her recipe, even the best pickled beets are just ok for me now. I don’t know how this would taste. Maybe…maybe I’ll try it. What do you think, is this a side dish or a dessert??

So as not to overwhelm you with the school lessons of Irene B., I’ll continue with recipes and add a page or two from her book from time to time.
