Harvard Beets III

Top Review by georgann schultz

Excellent, easy recipe. The beets were glossy and beautiful. There was a rich taste to the sauce with the butter. Very much like my grandmother made. Yummy!! I will make my beets like this from now on! The only difference from the instructions: I roasted my beets, cooled, peeled then sliced them. Oh, and be sure NOT to get your nose in the vinegar steam as you are stirring before adding the beets! *g* Thanks for the great recipe!
