Hawaiian Beets

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

I happen to like beets, but many in my circle of friends don't, so I usually keep this recipe just for myself & a few guests who don't mind a taste-experiment! It comes from the 1967 'so good with FRUIT' cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens.

Dear Syd, this was delicious as sidedish with plain rice to smoked trout!
My son said he likes such red pineapples! My daughter said that it would be good as dessert cutting down the salt and served on sweet coconut rice.
In any case this is really versatile recipe That is worth do try.
Thanks a lot for posting this gem!
