I made half of this recipe and found the measuring to be quite difficult. It's hard to measure beets by the tablespoon! ;) I actually doubled the amount of beets and could probably have added even more. Because it was a pretty small amount of food, the little blender wouldn't mix it so I just mushed it up as best as I could with a fork! I liked the flavour of this but I think I would only make it in a larger batch. I like your creative thinkin' Acadia! Made for Hidden Gems.
