  • 1
    Cut off all but 1 inch of beet tops. Wash beets; leave whole with root ends attached. Heat 8 to 9 cups water, 1 tablespoon white vinegar (to preserve color) and salt (if desired) to boiling in 4-quart Dutch oven. Add beets. Cover and boil 40 to 50 minutes or until tender; drain. Cool, peel and slice beets.
  • 2
    Mix cornstarch, sugar, salt and pepper in 3-quart saucepan. Gradually stir in water and vinegar. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute.
  • 3
    Stir in beets; cook until hot.

Expert Tips

  • Can’t find fresh? Omit step 1, and use two 15-ounce cans of sliced beets, drained and liquid reserved, instead of the cooked fresh beets. Add enough water to reserved liquid to measure 1 1/3 cups, and use beet liquid for the water.
  • Make the flavor sparkle by replacing water with orange juice and stirring in 1 teaspoon grated orange peel with the sugar.
