I had beets galore from my garden and wanted to use them over the holidays in a different way. Your recipe was a hit...none got thrown away! I made it as written, Thanks.

I have been canning beets and had a few left over. So I found this recipe and thought it sounded different!! My husband and I both loved it. I didn't put in the pickles or the hard boiled eggs. But everything was according to the recipe. Very good. It is a saver. Thanks, Sue
