Candied Beets Recipe

From Chef J Frank

1 pound golden beets

1⁄4 cup beet liquid

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

4 tablespoons Blue Agave vanilla flavored syrup

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1⁄8 teaspoon cinnamon

Trim the beets and use the greens in another dish. Wash the beets well, place in roasting pan with 1⁄2 cup water and cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 350 degrees until tender, but not soft (about 1 hour). Cool, and then peel the skin. Retain 1⁄4 cup of liquid from the pan and mix with remaining ingredients. Cook over medium heat 4 to 5 minutes or until syrupy. Cut the beets into medium sized cubes and toss with the glaze. Serve warm or cold.

Serves 6.
