READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Bertha C.

I use beets from the garden and these are much better than the pickled beets you buy in cans.

I made these yesterday and ate them all today (in one sitting). They are truly fantastic. I didn't have any allspice on hand so I substituted cardamon. I'm going to make these again tomorrow. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
