 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       lb           Fresh young small beets
    2       ts           Cornstarch
      1/4   ts           Salt
      1/4   ts           Ground allspice
      1/8   ts           Black pepper
    1       tb           Grated orange rind
      1/4   c            Brown sugar
      2/3   c            Orange juice
    2       tb           Butter (1/4 stick)
                         Minced chives
 
   Cut off beet tops and wash beets well. Simmer beets, covered, in enough
   water to cover for 45-60 minutes or until tender. Drain and cover with cold
   water; trim off tops and roots and remove skin. Slice 1/4 inch thick and
   set aside. In medium saucepan, combine cornstarch, salt, allspice, pepper,
   orange rind, and brown sugar. Gradually add orange juice, stir until
   smooth. Add butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture thickens.
   Add beets and heat through. Place in individual serving dishes and sprinkle
   with chives.
