Harvard Beets in a Jiffy

Comment on this recipe

"I know one can buy Harvard beets in a can, but by making your own, you can adjust the sweetness or sourness to suit your family and besides it's less expensive."

Ingredients

1 can (13.25 or 15 ounces) sliced beets
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup beet juice

Instructions

Drain beets, reserving juice. Mix together sugar, salt, flour. Add vinegar and the 1/4 cup beet juice. Cook and stir until thick. Then add beets. If mixture appears too thick, add a little more of the reserved juice and re-heat.
