"This is the best recipe I have for Harvard beets!! Everyone loved them and they're easy to prepare!!"
"This receipt is perfect. It belongs under "pickles" and is better than most and extremely nutritious !"
"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!!!"
"no stars available - great!"
"This is my favorite way to make beets now!"
"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!"
