I used fresh beets, and it was the first time I ever cooked with them. Mine were fairly large, so I simmered them for just over an hour, then placed them in cold water; the skin peeled off easily with a dull knife. I wasn't sure if I should save the liquid they boiled in; I didn't and it all worked out in the end. I just added the rest of the ingredients to a saucepan (dissolving the cornstarch in a little water) and then added the beets that I sliced. Let it cook a minute or two. It produced a nice, thick sauce, and the beets absorbed it. Just what I was hoping for. I already made the Honey Beet Salad from this site, which I highly recommend. Thanks for the great recipe, Shearyah!
