Beets canned in Lemonade

Tiffany Bannworth


Canning in lemonade leaves the beets with a fresh taste that goes great in salads or other recipes.

This also works well with green beans or snow peas intended for salads, as well.

After the beets are finished, use liquid in cakes instead of red food coloring.
