Glazed Beets Recipe
My grandmother used this recipe to get us little vegetable haters to eat our beets! Her special dish made beets taste nearly as good as candy. With the tart-sweet scent of Glazed Beets in the air, it never took us long to jump down from the climbing tree out back when we were called to dinner.
