Heat beets and drain off liquid. Combine sugar, salt, and cornstarch, mixing well. Add orange juice and margarine and cook 5 minutes or until thick. Add beets.

For beets with an orange flavor, I drain about one-half of the liquid from a can of beets and then add 1 tsp. of orange extract before I heat them up. You can also heat them up in orange juice without the extract. Either way, they have less calories than when you add cornstarch and sugar but still have that wonderful orange flavor!

Combine orange juice with raisins; heat to boiling. Mix salt, sugar, cornstarch with 2 tablespoons beet juice and add to orange juice and raisins; cook until clear. Add lemon juice, butter and beets. Heat through and serve.
