Beets & Carrots With West Indian Spices Recipe
1 lb beets (about 4 medium)
1 lb carrots, sliced
2 tbsp grated fresh gingerroot
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 grated zest of 1 orange
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp mace
Wash the beets well and cut off the leaves, leaving an inch or so of
stem. Cover with cold water, bring to a boil and simmer, covered
until tender, about 40 minutes. Drain and cover with cool or lukewarm
water. When cool enough to handle, slip off the skins. Cut the beets
into slices or chunks.
Peel and cut the carrots into slices or chunks, resemling the beets
in size and
style. Steam or boil in lightly salted water about 5 minutes or until
tender but not soft. Drain.
Combine the ginger, sugar, orange juice, vinegar, orange zest and
spices in a saucepan and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook until
thickened. Simmer the cooked beets and carrots in this sauce for
about 5 minutes.
Note: Alternatively, you may bake the beets in a foil-covered pan for
hour. When cool, slip off the skins. Cut the beets into slices or
Since I didn't want to waste the beet tops, I sliced the green beet
tops and steamed them and when I combined the sauce with the cooked
beets and carrots, I
also added the steamed beet tops.

Weight loss hints and tips

Its extremely popular, but it is really safe for you?
Reducing carbs could mean missing out on essential nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which must be part of any well adjusted diet, in particular those provied by vegetables, grains and fruits.

The onion and garlic family of foods is high in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
