CANNED HARVARD BEETS (SWEET)

Peggi Anne Tebben Recipe

By Peggi Anne Tebben cookiequeen

I have been using this recipe for about 25 years now when our beets come off. We love them.

I got the recipe from a CANNING, PRESERVING,& FREEZING COOKBOOK (Favorite Recipes Of Home Economics Teachers) that I sold to my Mom when I was in Home Economics In 1974. She used this book & now it's mine. One of my favorites.

Peggi's note: I use larger beets sometimes , but just make sure when you cut them in half or quarter them that they are all the same size so they cook uniformly. We eat them cold as a side.

This recipe never said if you put them in quarts or pints, but I always can mine in pints.
