    I'll admit, were not beet lovers here, but my friend had extra beets from their garden and was over for dinner tonight so we used this recipe. They just loved it, though I didn't try it cause I hate beets they just loved it so I printed out the recipe for them.  -  21 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good! Sweet beets and the sugar/vinegar/cinnamon really helped to diminish the earthy beet taste. Also, the vinegar isn't that strong once this is ready to eat. I used fresh beets from my garden, just boiled 'em for an hour or so until they were tender.  -  18 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    after unsuccessfully scouring my kitchen for my grandmother's recipe for pickled beets, I decided to come to allrecipes... and again, wasn't disappointed. This is as close to grandma's as I've seen. The only change was that she always tossed in a few cloves... probably 1/2t or so. I just heard my kids in the basement, "do you smell that? She's cooking beets again." so I must be doing SOMETHING right. Who cares if I'm the only one in the house who loves these? Thanks a bunch, TasteKing!  -  30 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
