Thank goodness I only started with one beet. I set my timer for 12 minutes (for the first 15 minute period) and had to snatch them out before they set off the smoke alarm (burned black and beyond any possibility of recognition).

I made several batches If they didn't burn up they were too soft and mushy and never hardened! Impossible to get them just right & I am no amateur cook....I will buy them already made at my health food store because this recipe was a big mess with little results! Read More
