This recipe and photo were shared with me by Karen Calanchini of Redding, California. Karen says that this is an old Portuguese recipe that her grandparents and mother used to make when fresh beets were in the garden. They took fresh beets from the garden and whatever amount they gathered they processed. There really is no actual recipe, as you use how many beets you have harvested.
