And the Beets Go On
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 15 min.
I've been making this recipe for many years, ever since it first appeared in the Taste of Home magazine. It's my favorite way to enjoy beets. I use slightly more orange juice concentrate, maybe 1/3 cup instead of 1/4 cup or just add more to taste. When the craving hits, which is every time anyone says the word "beets", keeping the ingredients on hand simplifies the satisfaction I get from throwing them in a pan and heating them up.
There are several beet lovers in my family, so I decided to serve this at Easter dinner. It was so simple to put together and everyone loved it. ( I only used 1 can of beets and it turned out just fine.)
This is by far, the best beet recipe I have eaten. The only thing I will change is using 2 cans of the cranberry sauce instead of 1 so the ratio to the beets is more even. I want the exact amount of sauce on my spoon as the beets. And yes, I eat it with a spoon because the sauce would slip thru the fork tongs.
My whole family loves beets and we eat them often. I was curious about adding cranberries to beets but I have to say We all loved it. You have just the right amount of orange tang to it and the sweetness of the berries WOW! This is a keeper for my family.
I fixed this for a side dish at christmas and I was pleased to find my 20 year old son who does not like beets had 3 helpings!
I'm not a beet fan,but these were great

I have made this dish countless times and just realized I had not posted a comment. Beet lovers rejoice (and after taking this to potlucks I have found there are a lot of us out there). This is a wonderful treat. Easy and addictive. I keep the ingredients on hand at all times.
Was a little skeptical about trying this, I don't care for cranberries. It was delicious, will definitely have it again.
Tried this for the first time this year on T-day. Fast and wonderfully flavorful. This will be a new staple in your T-day menu!
