"My Mom made these when I was a little girl. I always loved them. Haven't had them in a long time. Got to thinking about it and she always called them Harvard Beets. Well, low and behold, I found the recipe!!!"

"Vollied at a major kitchen here in Southern Oregon for a year (Sr. Citizen center, Meals on Wheels, etc) and first time I saw this recipe ... the top line was 'Serves 1,000.' Trust me, there were NO left overs. :>)"

"I love beets, so it's not a surprise that I liked this a lot. I don't have much of a sweet tooth so I used less sugar than called for and added some Sriracha in its stead. Yummy!"
