Best Chilled Beets Recipe

I really didn't like beets until my mother made these. When I've served them to guests or taken them to a gathering, many people have told me how much they like them. The combination of ingredients may sound a bit unusual, but they really taste good together.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:10-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cans (16 ounces each) sliced beets
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 25 whole cloves, tied in a cheesecloth bag

Directions

  • 1. Drain the beets, reserving 1-1/2 cups of juice in a large saucepan. Add cornstarch to juice and mix well. Add beets and remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the sauce is slightly thickened, stirring often. Remove the spice bag. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Yield: 10-12 servings.

"I agree that's a little bit to much salt lol. I never liked beets but I tried these at the farmer's market and they were delicious. I make them all the time."

"LOL, I better change my copy because I doubt I would make this recipe if it took 12 tsp. of salt.....LOL

I am sure it should a half, but I bet you could get away using 1/4 tsp. since you are using canned beets.
