When planning your garden this spring and wondering how many beets to put in, here is a recipe my grandma use to make every fall that may make you consider an extra row. So pretty as gift in beautiful jars.
Time 40 minutes
12 medium beets peeled and cut into small pieces
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 package sure jell
6 cups sugar
How to make it
Wash beets then peel and cut into small pieces.
Cover with water.
Cook until tender. Drain juice off.
(For every 4 cups juice¬† add package of sure jell.)
Add lemon juice and sure jell then stir until dissolved.
Put over high heat and stir until mixture boils hard.
At once stir in 6 cups sugar and bring to a full rolling boil then boil hard for 1 minute.
Remove from heat then skim off foam and pour into glass jars.
Process in water bath for 20 minutes.

That sounds sooooo good! I love beets and a friend just volunteered to teach me to can, so I think we'll try this out. She loves beets too! (Honestly, I think they are so underappreciated, lol.)
