    Krsi Sue's Note:

    Beets are used a lot in Russian and Finnish cooking. This has a sweet and sour flavor that is very enjoyable. For a little crunch, garnish with cooked, crumbled bacon. If you don't have fresh beets, you may use store boughten canned beets, whole or chunked. I wouldn't recommend the sliced beets, as they crumble too easily.
