This recipe looked good but i didn't have all the ingredients so i improvised. I cut the sugar in half, used 1-1/3 cups white vinegar and 3/4 cup apple juice for the apple cider vinegar, and also used 2 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp allspice and 1 tsp dried ginger for the apple pie spice, and used fresh golden beets( about 4 medium sized). To this I also added 1/3 cup dried gogi berries. i then proceeded to braise the whole mixture on the stove in a frying pan on medium heat. when the beets were "al dente" i stirred together 1 tsp cornstarch with 1 cup cold water then added it to the beets. when the sauce thickened i removed from stove and served.

I was looking for something to do with my canned beets and found this recipe. Very good intenons- I would just suggest cutting the sugar, it was a bit too sweet for me. I also cut the seasoning just a bit and added some freshly grated ginger and broken pieces of ramen noodle uncooked. Definitly good, we ate it all!

Fixed it last night and followed it exactly. Easy and excellent. We love harvard beets but this is even better.
