Very good will be serving this dish often, will also try apricot preserves or orange marmalade to see how they taste.

I was looking for a way to fancy up beets for Thanksgiving dinner & thought this would be great, and it was!! Everybody commented on how good it was. I also discovered that it is just as good as a cold side. A bit like pickled beets only with out the vinegar! I will definitely be making this again!
