Cornstarch will make a clear sauce as flour will not. I ate this beet pineapple recipe hot, and didn't like it much, but it is great served as a cold salad.
A super easy to put together side dish. I used splenda brown to bring the calories down a smidge (though they are already pretty good). I think next time I'll cut up my beets. I'm looking forward to having this available in the fridge for me to munch on. Get well soon, Kitten!
Made this recipe with #80449 Fluffiest Scrambled Eggs, for the first brunch of the new year. And for my first,ever tags. They complimentd each other nicely. DH and I both enjoyed this recipe. Made it according to the recipe, but with Splenda brown sugar blend, and rice flour for my dietary imperatives.
I made one major change -- I used one very large fresh beet and diced it, and used fresh pineapple, diced it as well (about 2/3 of a small pineapple). To make up for the liquid from the can, I used about an extra 1/2 cup water. I just prefer fresh to canned. But I am sooooo glad that I tried this recipe -- I would never have thought of this combination on my own, and I loved every last bite of it. I mopped up all that glorious fuschia-pink sauce with a piece of bread once the chunks of beet and pineapple were all gone. This is a keeper for sure. Made for Kittencal's cook-a-thon, sending my very best wishes for a rapid recovery! Thanks for the yum-yums!
I've made these twice this week and neglected to review the first time. Initially, I made them with brown sugar Splenda and flour. Ended up adjusting by adding a little more vinegar as my tastes tend toward tend towards the tangy. The secnd time I used regular Splenda and arrowroot to make the WW Core. Also very good though I missed the bit of flavor from the brown sugar. either way they were a asty treat. Thanks Kitz. Just delicious.
This is a great way to get kids to eat beets! I used a quart of frozen chopped beets and unsweetened pineapple chunks so needed to add 1/4 c. sugar. Wonderful recipe, thanks!
5 stars plus! we loved this dish. next time I will double the recipe. thanks
i was a little nervous about trying this- i love all the ingredients but wasn't sure how they'd taste together. it turned out great. my mother said it tasted like candy! very sweet but not overly so. i will make this again for sure. served it with dancer's sauteed tillapia with lime sauce. what a great combination! thanks
