Wine-Poached Beets

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan combine 1/2 cup of the wine, the water, and brown sugar. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add beets. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 45 minutes until beets are tender and can be pierced with a fork, stirring occasionally. Drain. Transfer beets to serving bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Splash with remaining 1/4 cup wine. Drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve with lemon wedges. Makes 8 to 10 side-dish (1/2-cup) servings.

From the Test Kitchen

*

You can avoid staining your hands with beet juice if you wear plastic gloved while peeling and cutting the beets. Trim beet tops or leave tops on.

From the ingredients list the directions 'look' wrong. It appears that in step 1 the amount of wine should read: 1/2, and in step 2 the amount of wine should read: 1/4.
