Servings: 6

Rub beets with the oil, and roast at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour until just crisp-tender.

Cool, peel and quarter with a pairing knife. Set aside.

Bring remaining ingredients, except the onions, to a light boil in a non-reactive sauté pan over medium heat and cook until reduced by 1/3. When reduced, add the beets the onions and continue cooking until pan is essentially “dry” and vegetables are glazed.

Season with sea salt and serve.
