ready for baking

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!

Spiced Beets


  • 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.
