These balsamic and brown sugar glazed beets are easy and tasty with a sweet-sour flavor. Fresh beets are simmered with a mixture of brown sugar, butter, and balsamic vinegar.
You may make these beets with canned beets as well. See the tips and variations below the recipe.
Combine beets with water, brown sugar, vinegar, and butter. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium and continue simmering, uncovered, for about 1 hour, or until beets are tender and most of the liquid has boiled away.
- If you're short on time, you can make the recipe with canned beets and have the same flavor. Drain 2 cans (15 ounces each) of beets, reserving 1/2 cup of the liquid. Put the beets, the 1/2 cup of liquid, and the brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, and butter in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and continue simmering, uncovered, until the glaze mixture has reduced and thickened, about 20 to 30 minutes.
- Add 2 tablespoons of sweet orange marmalade to the beets for a hint of orange flavor.
- Make the recipe with golden beets instead of red beets.
