LOVE these beets! I too cheated and used canned beets, but with AMAZING results. Such mild pickling flavor. Made recipe as written and wouldn't change a thing. THANKS for a kepper of a recipe (for a beet lover). Made for VEG*N tag Aug 2009.

This was super easy to make. I got 2lbs of baby beets for $2 at the farmer's market and had just bought local honey. Really good. I also topped half of the prepared beets with garlic/chickpea/dill/parsley sauce I made, excellent!

I used whole baby beets in the can, so this was unbelievably easy to make. I put it together in the morning and served for dinner. Wow, this had tremendous flavour for such a little amount of work. Thank you for the recipe.
