"This is by far, the best beet recipe I have eaten. The only thing I will change is using 2 cans of the cranberry sauce instead of 1 so the ratio to the beets is more even. I want the exact amount of sauce on my spoon as the beets. And yes, I eat it with a spoon because the sauce would slip thru the fork tongs."

"My whole family loves beets and we eat them often. I was curious about adding cranberries to beets but I have to say We all loved it. You have just the right amount of orange tang to it and the sweetness of the berries WOW! This is a keeper for my family."
