What You'll Need

  • 2 pounds small fresh beets

What to Do

  1. Leave root and 1-inch of stem on beets; scrub with a vegetable brush. Place beets in a saucepan, and cover with water. Cook beets over medium-high heat 30 minutes or until tender. Drain. Pour cold water over beets, and drain. Trim roots and stems, and rub off skins. Cut beets into 1/4-inch slices; set aside.

  2. Combine brown sugar and next 4 ingredients in a large saucepan; gradually add orange juice, stirring mixture until smooth. Stir in butter; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute.

  3. Add beets; cook until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with chives before serving.


Ever cooked beets from scratch? This recipe walks you through the method, step-by-step. But if you wanna get your side dish on the table in less than 10 minutes, you can substitute 2 (14-1/2-ounce) cans of sliced, drained beets for fresh, and omit Step 1. Proceed with Step 2.

With March being Frozen Food Month, we thought it would be fun to share a recipe that was inspired by a handful of items we picked up after checking out all that the freezer aisle has to offer.
