Orange Glazed Crock Pot Beets


I like beets, so I gave this one a try since it was in a crock pot.  I liked these, but they were a little too sweet for me.

Orange Glazed Crock Pot Beets
From A Year of Slow Cooking
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 2-3 hours

4 medium beets, peeled and sliced in 1/4 inch slices
1/4 cup butter
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp orange zest
1/4 cup orange juice

1. Peel and slice the beets, and place them in crock pot (be careful, beets stain terribly).  Add butter, brown sugar, orange zest, and orange juice.  Toss with spoons to distribute the zest and sugar.  Don't worry that your butter is still in a clump.

2.  Cover and cook on low for 5 hours, or on high for 2-3.  The beets are done when they have reached desired tenderness.  You want a fork to insert easily, and the beets to be able to be cut with the edge of a fork.
