    I used fresh beets instead of canned, just boiled them for about 10 minutes before continuing with recipe. Loved it!!  -  14 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was perfect! My neighbor gave me some beets, I baked them at 325 for an hour, let them cool a bit and then used this recipe. I wanted a recipe that didn't need pickling spices, because I didn't have that on hand....this was exactly like grandmas! Thanks for the recipe!  -  16 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
