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!
