Beets with Orange Sauce

Beets with Orange Sauce

This recipe for Beets in an orange sauce comes from our classic Vintange recipe collection. Beets make a great side dish for any Valentine's Day dinner. With their red color and the sweetness of the beets and orange sauce, they match perfectly with the theme of the Valentine's holiday.

Be sure to check out our Valentine's Day Menu as part of our holiday menu collection.

For this Valentine's recipe I prefer to use fresh beets when I can get them, but canned are ok, just make sure you drain them well.
