      Just what I have been looking for! Like instant pickled beets in thickened cider vinegar and sugar brine. The balance of sweet & sour is perfect. Will try the vodka next time.

      Great recipe, gives it a sweet and sour taste. I used raw beets, sliced and boiled.

      quick. easy. and addictive! Made this recipe for dinner with my parents-in-law. I couldn't stop tasting the glaze - delicious. Didn't have the vodka, so I tried with a half ounce of Brandy - great flavor!
