I made these beets two days before Christmas so that I could enjoy them with our holiday meal however; I forgot to set them out on the table. That worked out well though, because I have been nibbling on them each day since then. I will definitely be making these beets again. Just have to make one tiny alteration...I will cut the beet juice back just a pinch and increase the vinegar because I thought the beets could use a bit more twang.
