This was a very good combination if you like beets! I didn't have any canned beets so I boiled some fresh ones and used the water I boiled them in for the sauce. I would suggest adding the suger gradually and tasting after each addition...I think I only ended up adding about 1/4 of a cup.

This was good and easy to make. I used fresh beets, boiled, and saved the water, just like another reviewer. I used 1/4 cup of honey instead of any sugar, and it was great. The family liked it.
