Beets You Can Eat!!

Beets are a powerhouse of nutrition!  But, I never could get past the taste of them until I tried this recipe!  They were actually GOOD!!

Roasted Beet Medley with Balsamic Glaze

5 small beets (red, golden or white)
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 T packed brown sugar (I added 2 for good measure)
salt and pepper
2T Fresh herbs (chopped basil, dill, thyme, tarragon or chives)
or 2 tsp dried herbs

Heat oven to 400.  Trim greens and roots from beets, leaving 1 inch of both intact. Wrap tightly in foil and place on baking sheet.
Bake 50-60 minutes or until tender.  Let stand until cool enough to handle.
Bring vinegar, brown sugar, salt and pepper to a gentle boil in small saucepan.  Simmer 5 minutes. 
Remove beet skins, trim and discard roots.  Cut into thin slices and arrange on platter.  Drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with herbs.
