Beets with Mandarin Oranges Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

This was a really tasty surprise. Looking at all of the ingredients it is kind of hard to imagine how they could go together. It was almost like pickled beets with a citrus twist. I chilled this and we ate it as a cold salad. I would definitely make again.

Just made this recipe. It hasn't chilled yet and I wanted to try it chilled, but smells great. Warm was o.k. but not special to me. I love spiced, chilled foods. I just wanted to give a hint to new cooks, after you microwave the cider and spices, stand back when you open the microwave! It will open your sinuses . I'm giving 5 star for ease and cost.

Fixed it last night and followed it exactly. Easy and excellent. We love harvard beets but this is even better.

This recipe looked good but i didn't have all the ingredients so i improvised. I cut the sugar in half, used 1-1/3 cups white vinegar and 3/4 cup apple juice for the apple cider vinegar, and also used 2 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp allspice and 1 tsp dried ginger for the apple pie spice, and used fresh golden beets( about 4 medium sized). To this I also added 1/3 cup dried gogi berries. i then proceeded to braise the whole mixture on the stove in a frying pan on medium heat. when the beets were "al dente" i stirred together 1 tsp cornstarch with 1 cup cold water then added it to the beets. when the sauce thickened i removed from stove and served.

I was looking for something to do with my canned beets and found this recipe. Very good intenons- I would just suggest cutting the sugar, it was a bit too sweet for me. I also cut the seasoning just a bit and added some freshly grated ginger and broken pieces of ramen noodle uncooked. Definitly good, we ate it all!
