Sour Creamed Beets
This recipe brings back many memories of holiday feasts and this recipe was always on the table as my mom loved her beets! Of course she would have to leave some of them plain for me as I was such a fussy eater but I still loved beets. We grew beets every year in our garden and mom would can them up to add to our storage shelves in the cellar, packed with all kinds of home preserved fruits and veggies from our garden and nearby orchards. We even grew concord grapes from which my grandpa would make homemade wine, never got a taste of that as I was too young, what a shame!
- 2 cans (16 oz each) whole baby beets, cut in cubes
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 1 tbsp vinegar
- 1 teas minced onion
- ¾ teas sugar
- ½ teas salt
- Dash cayenne (optional)
- Heat beets and drain.
- While beets are heating up, combine the remaining ingredients.
- Spoon mixture onto the drained beets and heat slowly, stirring to coat.
