Thanksgiving Beets

Hearty beets, cooked with a spicy glaze, are a delicious side dish that can be frozen and used later, if you like. Just cook them, then bag them up for the freezer.

Yield

4 servings

Ingredients

2 pounds beets, peeled and sliced
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper

Directions

Place the beets into a large saucepan. Pour in enough water to cover the beets by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the beets are easily pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes; drain.

Whisk together the brown sugar, vinegar, water, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a saucepan. Add the beets and the butter, turn the heat to medium, and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil. Cook until the sauce thickens slightly, about a minute or two. Salt and pepper to taste. The sauce will not be sticky-thick, but will still pour nicely. Serve beets hot or cold.
