    This turned out lovely and tasted really good too...a nice twist on Harvard beets. I doubled the recipe because I was cooking for a large group, but had so many dishes made up, I could have gotten by without increasing it...oh well...leftovers for DH and myself... :-) Thanks for sharing Inez!!

    I'm not necessarily a beet or pineapple fan but did a "test run" of this recipe as a potential menu item for Thanksgiving. The older folks in the family enjoy beets so I thought I'd try it and see what I thought. I was pleasantly surprised. This is an extremely easy recipe to make and it made the beets reasonably tasty. I used crushed pineapple. In the future, I'd increase the brown sugar since I like sweet flavors.

    I'm not much of a pineapple fan, but this was good. I omitted the butter and decreased the brown sugar to 2 tablespoons. Good recipe, thanks for posting. (I think there's an error in the cooking time -- this doesn't take 1 hour 10 minutes to cook!)

    My DH loved this recipe and so do I. I agree with another reviewer that this is quite sweet, but there were no complaints from my family. Great way to prepare beets!

    This was a great side dish. I had fresh beets out of my garden, precooked, instead of the canned beets. I like the amount of sauce this makes - just enough! Thank-you.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
