“A delicious way of serving beetroot, that can be eaten hot or cold. You may need to adjust the sugar and vinegar to taste. This is better left for the next day, and reheated.”

I needed a way to use up some leftover beets and these were delicious!! The only problem I had was that I used half white vinegar and half red wine vinegar and they were a little more sour than sweet! I will definatley make them again with malt vinegar.



We loved this! I cut down a little on the oil, only used enough to saute the onions, and I added a clove of chopped garlic with the onions. Apart from that, followed the recipe exactly. Thank you - will definately make this again!



These were pretty good. A little too sweet. Also I added a clove of garlic after reading the other review. Next time I'll leave that out. I didn't really think it belonged there and I love garlic. Next time i will hold back on a little of the brown sugar and not add any garlic. Also, I used cider vinegar and it worked just fine. Thanks for the recipe. The 4 stars is based on the sweetness. Not my mistake of adding garlic. UPDATE: Made this again with a little less sugar and they were perfect for our tastes.
