Kendra's Pretty Good Beets - If You Like That Kind Of Thing

Updated: Oct 25, 2023

I've heard that our taste buds change every seven years. I found a beet recipe that I thought I would see if my taste buds had changed since I was a kid. It was labeled "The Best Beet Recipe". Perfect, right?! I, of course, changed it up a little and posted below is what I came up with. By the way, this was my first time ever to cook beets. It is a pretty easy recipe.

***Kendra's Pretty Good Beets - If You Like That Kind Of Thing***

* 3 beets, boiled in plenty of water for 1 hour with three bay leaves and 1/4 t kosher salt - then peeled (discard the bay leaves and water when the hour is up)

* one medium yellow onion

* juice from one orange

* one minced clove of garlic

* 1/4 c jam/jelly of choice (or honey or agave)

* 1/2 T grated fresh ginger

* 1/4 t fresh thyme

* 2 T EVOO

*S & P to taste

Heat the EVOO in your pan on med-high heat. Cut each beet in half. Lay the flat side down and slice into half moon discs. Then cut each moon disc in half - length wise. (Kinda like steak fries). Slice your onion in half moon slices also (halved onion rings). Add your onion and garlic to heated oil in pan. Cook for about 4 minutes. Add the beets. Add orange juice, thyme, ginger and jam (or whatever sweetener you choose). Simmer on med to med-low for about 10 minutes. Taste. Add S & P - however much you like. I added just a pinch of kosher salt and a few turns from the pepper mill. Enjoy!
