High in iron and Vitamin C, beets are a colourful vegetable that ought to be in my diet. I have waxed eloquent before on my beet challenge, and I have managed to find at least one way to love beets, in an herbed oven roasted way.
Oh, lucky me! Here is a second way!
- 4 cup sliced cooked beets
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons vinegar
- 1/4 cup boiling water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon cloves
Place beets in greased 1 1/2 quart casserole.
Melt butter, blend in flour and sugar. Add vinegar and boiling water, cook stirring constantly until bubbling. Add remaining ingredients. Pour over beets.
Cover and bake at 350° F. for 25 minutes.
