Heat 8 to 9 cups water, 1 tablespoon white vinegar (to preserve color) and salt (if desired) to boiling in 4-quart Dutch oven. Add beets. Cover and boil 40 to 50 minutes or until tender; drain. Cool, peel and slice beets.

  • 3 Stir in beets; cook until hot.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Can’t find fresh? Omit step 1, and use two 15-ounce cans of sliced beets, drained and liquid reserved, instead of the cooked fresh beets. Add enough water to reserved liquid to measure 1 1/3 cups, and use beet liquid for the water.

Make the flavor sparkle by replacing water with orange juice and stirring in 1 teaspoon grated orange peel with the sugar.
