      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.
