Glazed Baby Beets
With only 3 ingredients, this dish is easy to prepare and stunning to serve.
Make glazed beets the centerpiece of an elegant and light meal by spooning them over a salad of grains and herbs, such as quinoa and mint. Brighten up the beets with Hefeweizen with Orange, play up the earthiness with Porter beer jelly, or make them sexy with Burgundy Anise wine jelly. This also works great with carrots and other root vegetables.
½ pound baby beets
2 Tablespoons beer or wine jelly
1-2 Tablespoons water
Salt to taste
Crushed garlic, thyme, & black pepper (optional)
Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Place beets, water, salt and beer jelly in a single layer across the bottom of a small heavy pan. Cover with a lid or foil and place in the oven. Stir occasionally and allow the beets to cook for 30 minutes. Test with a fork. The beets should be slightly tender but not yet soft. Remove the cover and continue to cook for 15 more minutes until the glaze begins to thicken and coat the beets. Toss the beets in their glaze. Serves 2.
