"I love beets and this is my favorite way of cooking them."
2 (15 ounce) cans
whole beets, quartered
Drain beets, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. In a medium saucepan combine sugar and cornstarch; mix well. Gradually stir in reserved beet juice, vinegar, and salt; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer 2 minutes. Add beets; simmer on low, stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes. Before serving, add butter, and bring just to boiling.
