    Diann is Cooking's Note:

    This one came from the New York Times, January 17th, 1999. I'm not sure what unit a "bunch" is, but hey, try for a couple or three in a bunch. You can use chicken stock instead of the vegetable stock.

      A "bunch" as I understand it is a group of 3-4 beets. Therefore, three bunches would be roughly 12 beets. For this recipe, taking into consideration the amount of spices, I used 1 bunch. This was delicious over a simple plate of fresh arugula leaves. Reviewed for Veg Tag/May.

      Fantastic but I would use more (double?) spices next time. everyone enjoyed these but said they couldn't detect the spices very well. I'm happyto have found a new way to serve beets! Made for Special Event - adopt a veggie tag.

      After reading the other reviews, I made this recipe using 12 beets & doubled the rest of the ingredients for a very nice tasting beet dish! Did let it drain before serving it & the beets were great! Just as nice the next day, too, when I served 'em cold! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
