Pomegranate Glazed Beets

A ruby red pomegranate glaze lends a tart, slightly sweet taste to tender beets. They’d be the perfect addition to a festive holiday table. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 2 pounds fresh beets, trimmed and peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick (3 inches)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  • Cut each beet into six wedges; place in a large bowl. Add oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt; toss to coat.
  • Place a piece of heavy-duty foil (about 24 in. long) in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Arrange beets on foil; fold foil around beets and seal tightly. Bake at 400° for 35-40 minutes or until beets are tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.
  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the pomegranate juice, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon stick, orange zest, pepper and remaining salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until mixture is syrupy and reduced to 1/3 cup. Carefully remove beets from foil; add to syrup and toss gently to coat.
