This recipe for beets is outstanding. I used Kuzu instead of cornstarch. I used 1 fresh beet and cooked it first, used 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of water (I think I'll try 2 tbsp water next time).

Yum! Lately I've been on a beet craze and I had never had them this way. My Grandma told my Mom that she loved them this way but hadn't had them since her Mother was alive. I usually use only fresh beets but had some whole canned ones to use up from some pickled eggs I made and this made them taste wonderful! I can only imagine that fresh beets would be out-of-this-world. I had them with grilled chicken breast and dilled buttered potatoes and everything tasted good with the sauce.

Very tasty indeed. I enjoyed the sweet and tangy taste of these beets. So easy to prepare. I will make these again. Thanx!

Excellent, I never was a big fan of Beets, but this recipe is awesome. I used White Vinegar on this, so I could have probably cut back on the sugar. Overall this recipe was excellent

Virtually the same as Fannie Farmer's recipe, which I've used for many years, except that Fannie isn't that specific about the amount of beets to use, and she doesn't suggest leaving them in the fridge over night. Fannie specifies MILD vinegar; I like a plain white vinegar or cider vinegar for this. If I used seasoned rice vinegar, I'd cut back on the sugar accordingly.

I had canned beets (usually use them just for salads!) These were perfect! Instead of water I used the beet juice from the can...otherwise followed the recipe. Thank you for a recipe...that will be a regular in our house!
