If your gang is anything like mine, they want the same line-up of stars, year after year, on the Thanksgiving buffet table. Not everyone likes everything, but all want their favorite food as part of the cast. So, especially for my husband, this ancient recipe for Harvard beets is included.
Yields 6 servings
2 16-ounce cans sliced beets
1/3 cup vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
Drain beets, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. In 2- quart sauce pan, mix vinegar, sugar, cornstarch, salt and liquid until smooth; add butter.
Over medium heat, cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Add beets and cook just until heated through, stirring occasionally.
