I received this recipe from my Home Economics Teacher in Grade 8! One of the dishes we made in class!
8 to 10 cooked beets
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup water or juice from cooking beets
1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons butter (optional)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pinch of pepper
In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, vinegar and cooled beet water. Bring to a boil, and cook for 5 minute. Add the cooked beets to the liquid, and simmer just a few minutes until thickened and beets are heated through. Stir in butter, salt and pepper and remove from the heat. Serve warm.
