Favorite Beets Recipe

I make this recipe often. It dresses up beets with tangy flavor but lets their goodness come through. I prefer to eat mine warm, but my husband likes his cold.—Fred Castellini & Sin Farms, Greg Castellini, Vineland, New Jersey

"These were not terrible, but definitely not what I would call my 'favorite'. I roasted the beets because just straight boiling is almost never the best way to get flavor. Even so, I feel like this recipe needs something to add a little bit of sweetness. I probably would not make them again. My boyfriend sneaked his onto my plate when I wasn't looking."
