Beets

  • 1 lb of beets, washed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbl cornstarch
  • 1 Tbl sugar (or some other sweetener)
  • 3/4 tsp salt dash of pepper
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vinegar (I used cider)

Try to select beets of the same size. Place in 1.5 quart microwave dish with 1 cup of water. Cook on high until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain beets. Peel beets and slice.

In same dish, add remaining ingredients and stir well. Cook on high for 1.5 minutes. Add sliced beets. Cook for another 5 minutes.

They taste sort of like pickled beets except the sauce is thicker. I think this recipe could be adapted to carrots too. Maybe use pineapple juice for the 2/3 cup water.
