A different way to serve red beets. I wanted to present red beets in a non-traditional way, normally it’s just cooked red beets. In comes this sweet and sour red beets recipe. A totally different, but delicious way to serve red beets as a side dish. Presenting a veggie in a different way, can give you a new love for that vegetable. It’s a hit-and-miss matter. This sour red beets was a hit, luckily.
The sweet and sour red beets are flavored with apple vinegar, sugar and ginger. The apple vinegar adds the sour part, the sugar takes care of the sweet part.
Boodschappen is a website from several grocery stores, with tons of recipes on it. It’s where this recipe is from, only I cut it out of the paper version.
It was really easy to follow the recipe and I didn’t change anything to it.
