These beets are so good! Even my husband who does not care for beets said to make them again, so they are a keeper in this family! The 3 Tbsp. of horseradish seems like a lot but it really isn't, in the completed dish it is very mild. I used real maple syrup too so they are sweet. During the winter months I am going to make the sauce and put over canned beets.
