    Kaarin's Note:

    The only way to eat beets! When I harvest my beets in the fall I always make up a few batches of this for the freezer-they're just as good reheated and it's a wonderful quick veggie for winter! To prepare fresh beets, I cover them with water, cook for 30 minutes to an hour till tender, then peel and cube. This recipe is a Swedish family tradition. The long cooking time includes the time the beets need to marinate.

      I made this recipe and froze it last summer and just this week thawed a package and served them at supper. DH and I both really liked them. We love pickled beets, but this was a nice change and a way to serve them hot, thanks Kaarin!

      2/2/10-Very good. Not to sweet, not to sour. Just the right blend of ingredients. I will be making these again.
      Updated:7/23/12- I've always just used the red beets but I made these tonight using Golden Beets. I thought the red beets were delicious these were very, very good too.

      We just enrolled in a CSA and have never cooked beets before...this recipe is super easy, tasty and quick! I used Baked Beets for baked beets to cook them.
