Mandarin Glazed Beets
Mandarin oranges and a warm glaze transform canned beets into a super side dish. Lemon juice provides a bit of tartness. If your family doesn't like the tart flavor, I suggest adding a little more sugar. —Shirley Dehler Columbus, Wisconsin

I used the beets from my garden and it still turned out terrific! One my husband said to make again...very easy prep.
