We will be eating the last of the beets tonight with supper. Just wanted you to know that they were delicious and very much appreciated!
In case anyone wants a good recipe for them, here's one I got off the web:
about 5 good sized (2-3 inch) beets
1 packed Tablespoon brown sugar (having a sweet tooth I used two).
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
little pepper (I didn't use any)
1 Tablespoon corn starch
Leave root and about two inches of stem on beets. Steam beets until you can poke a fork into them, then rub the skin off under cold water. Slice beets about 1/4 inch thick.
Mix OJ, vinegar, salt, pepper, brown sugar, and cornstarch together and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. After the sauce thickens, add the sliced beets and cook until tender, around 30 minutes.
