"Beets and carrots in a sweet and spicy sauce."
Wash the beets well and cut off the leaves, leaving an inch or so of stem. (reserve beet greens for another use-good steamed with vinegar drizzled on).
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, roughly the same size as cut beets.
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 large enough to hold beets and carrots, and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook until thickened.
Put beets and carrots in the pan and simmer in the sauce for about 5 minutes.

I waited to review this until I was able to try them as leftovers too...and they are great right from the oven or after spending some time in the fridge. I followed the recipe with just a few minor tweaks...I used yellow beets, added some rutabaga cut about the same size, left out the ginger, added some orange/pepper since I didn't have orange peel (I used OJ) and used regular (not ground mace). I know it sounds like a lot of changes but really the only thing that would change flavor was leaving out nutmeg (my preference) and adding a little pepper. It was great right out of the oven, but the orange flavor is stronger as leftovers...so decide which you prefer and do it that way.
Wonderful flavour - this gets 5 plus. I used rainbow carrots - they are yellow, pale orange & regular orange colour. The combination of ingredients go so well together. This recipe will be made again for sure
Thanks Mikekey for a winner
