Harvard Beets

Whenever we would have a holiday gathering, Harvard Beets would be one of the many traditional dishes served. My grandmother always made them, and they were always the best. I have always been a big fan of beets. I can remember canning them with my mom when I was little, later on we painted with the juice of the beets too and if I remember correctly I was covered in beet juice by the end.

Not only can beets be very tasty, and a lot of fun for kids, but they are also a very healthy veggie. A compliment to many meals
