Beets. I love them! I buy them in a can that only contains water & salt with them. First I drain the juice into a saucepan, then I add a couple Tbsp of white vinegar and a couple Tbsp worth of sweetening. To that I add a Tbsp of butter with about 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum mashed into it. I bring it to a boil, stirring all the while; when it is thickened and boiling I add back the beets with just the tiniest pinch of cinnamon, lower the heat to medium low, cover, and let simmer for 10-15 minutes (or until I remember I have something on the stove!).

I love my beets this way, they pick up the flavors from the sauce quite well, although the sauce itself is too rich to eat...but it needs to be, to flavor the beets.
