Want something new to do with a CAN OF BEETS? I found a great recipe from B. Baumgardner of North Carolina in a Cooking for One or Two Book. It is DELISH! I only made it a little thicker from her original. I also added the raisins to cook in the sauce to soften them a bit instead of adding them at the end. Orange juice, brown sugar, raisins, beets…. what’s not to love! It is so quick to make! Try it, I think you will like it! Enjoy!”

Servings: 2 or 3

  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins, or dark
  • 1 can (8 -1/4 ounces) sliced beets, drained ( I used a 15 ounce can; perfectly fine)
  • strips of orange peel
  • 1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook and stir orange juice, brown sugar, butter, cornstarch, ginger, salt, black pepper, and raisins until thick.
  • 2. Add the beets and heat through.
  • 3. Remove from the heat and stir in the orange strips.
