I enjoy preparing this recipe because it gives me a chance to use the tender, fresh beets from our garden. It's so good, and very colorful!

"I had never made beets before. Our neighbor brought a few over from his garden. I had always turned my nose up at beets when they were served at family gatherings. I tried this recipe, and it was wonderful! I never knew that I liked beets."

"This was a pretty good recipe. I used only half the butter and that was fine. Next time I think I will add a little lemon juice to the beet water."

"I didn't think I liked beets until I ate some my mother-in-law prepared. I asked for the recipe and this was the one she gave me! That was nineteen years ago."
