Do beets always show up in your CSA bag every week? At home we always find ourselves with more beets than we know what to do with. Usually I just grate them, put them in a bowl and sprinkle some sea salt and lemon juice on top and call it a salad. My kids love carrots and because beets are similar to carrots, crunchy and slightly sweet, they'll usually eat my quick raw beet salad. However, lately the kids are asking for variety. No, they don't say "mom please give us variety" they just say "mom please" in that tone that sounds like a "puh-lease" as in "yeah, no way am I eating that again." Kids have the strange ability to love something and then immediately un-love something, especially if that something is related to food. So I decided it was time to create a new beet dish, one that has oranges, and a touch of brown sugar to help caramelize the beets. What you end up with is a simple warm side dish that's perfect for the winter months and happy kids.
