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.

Very nice. Some recipes call for a horrific amount of sugar. This was just the right balance of sweet and acidic. I used about 4 small beets and I halved the sauce ingredients. Good to know it is easily freezable, I'll be making it again to eat at a later date while beets are in season!

Excellent! I sliced the beets instead of cubing. My guests and family thought it was delicious. I made this with Healthy Debbie's Sauteed Beet Tops (another recipe I highyl recommend!)

I sped this up by using canned beats. This has a wonderful taste to it, and I was surprised to find myself actually enjoying beets.

What a pretty dish. I made this recipe at the end of summer when there was an abundance of beets from the garden. These beets freeze well and when thawed are a perfect side dish for the Christmas dinner. Very delicious.

I remember these from my childhood and decided to make them for DH. This recipe didn't thicken up for me at all and I recall them being sweeter. Thanks for sharing but I will keep searching/trying for the recipe I remember.

Very Good and didn't seem too sweet like a lot of other harvard beet recipes. I have a lot of beets in the garden this year and wasn't sure what to do with them all until now!! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. We will enjoy it all winter long.

These were fab, i've made loads for the freezer as i grew so much beetroot this year. It will most certainly be on the plate at Christmas. I will also try with malt vingar just to see the differnce. Thanks, loved it!
