Most beet varieties are available in markets in late spring. Although the most common type sold is deep garnet-red, you'll also find golden beets and even ones with concentric red and white stripes reminiscent of a candy cane. To insure freshness and tenderness, choose small or medium beets with their greens still attached. Remove the greens as soon as you get home, as they will leach moisture from the roots if stored intact over long periods. Garnish the dish with fresh parsley sprigs, if you like.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lb. red beets, with greens attached
  • 1 1/2 lb. yellow beets, with greens attached
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup aged balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tbs. firmly packed brown sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 400°F.

Trim off the beet greens and reserve for another use. Wash the beets well but do not peel, and place in a shallow baking dish. In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil and water. Pour the mixture over the beets and toss to coat them completely.

Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake until the beets are tender when pierced with a skewer, 45 to 55 minutes. Remove from the oven, uncover and let cool for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, stir together the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Continue to boil until reduced by one-third, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Peel the beets by slipping off the skins, then cut them crosswise into thin slices. Place in a warmed serving bowl and drizzle with the balsamic glaze. Season with salt and pepper, toss to coat and serve immediately.

Serves 6 to 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Delicious Had already roasted my red and golden beets (drizzled with olive oil and wrapped in foil pack @ 400 for 45 min) and decided I wanted to spice them up a bit. Found this recipe so I went straight to the balsamic and brown sugar part. I just added my sliced beets to the cooked mixture and simmered about 4-5 minutes to infuse the flavor. They were wonderful and so simple! Just perfect if you want to mix up a simple beet recipe! Will definitely make again!
