Orange Beets

I saved this Orange Beets recipe as soon as I saw it. While pickled beets are a favorite here I thought it would be fun to try a hot side dish recipe, and we all loved it! The orange and allspice are a nice flavor combination with beets. The original recipe calls for fresh beets, I used canned, either will work fine. If your crew is a fan of beets, don't hesitate to give this a try folks:@)

  1. I am embarrassed to tell you that I've never had beets 😱 I think it's because my mother always ate them and I thought they were so slimy as a child I just couldn't do it! I need to grow up and give them a try :)

  2. I've made some very similiar. They were called Harvard Beets. You know, I haven't made them in a very long time. Guess it's time to try them again. Thanks for the remind.

  3. I'm team beet with you. These look fantastic!!!

  4. I've made the Harvard beets, too, but I like the sound of this spicy, orange version, Lynn. I'll be giving this recipe a try.

  5. They sound wonderful! I just wish my husband would join the beet-lovers club :(

  6. Lynn, The color of your beets is beautiful! Alas, I only like beets if they're thinly sliced, oven roasted and disguised as pretty colored potato chip :)


Thank you for stopping by-enjoy your day!
