    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These are pretty much like Harvard beets, you can use canned beets slices (use one can) for this, or fresh cooked beets, I prefer the fresh cooked! also adjust the sugar to taste. You can double this recipe if desired, don't omit the orange zest, it really adds a kick to the beets!

      LOVE this recipe! So Delicious! I did omit the orange since I didn't have any on hand, doubled the sauce as well as used fresh organic beets. NO HFCS like the jarred shelved kind! Thank You:)

      Best sweet & sour beet recipe I have ever tasted!
      You do not want to leave out the orange zest. This
      is a simple & amazing recipe. I used fresh baby beets from our garden.

      Pretty much a good Harvard recipe. Quick, easy and tastes great. I took the orange one more step and used orange juice for the water. Used fresh beets that I then diced as per DH's preference. Yummm
