"I love beets...cold & pickled are my fav...so I thought I would try this warm version for something new. Yum!!! This is a great alternative to your typical go-to side dish."

"Just cooked fresh beets from the garden and searched for a quick way to serve them. This recipe is so easy. Cooked the sauce in the microwave. Flavor of honey could make a difference in taste. Will make again."
