I had some beets from our organic farmers market we have on the beach every week. I scaled the recipe to 3 servings because I only bought enought to try a recipe. This recipe reminds me the way my Mom use to make beets when I was a child. Good and simple way to make beets, but I couldn't convince my kids to eat it. - 05 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I like this recipe even though I only used 2 cups of sugar (thats all I had) and substituted 5 whole cloves because I coudn't find clove oil. Next time I'll try more cloves...unless I find that clove oil. - 28 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
