I am searching for a recipe for Harvard beets using the canned small whole beets and Splenda. I made this a while back and have lost the recipe. Any help will be appreciated.

I don't believe I've ever had Harvard beets, but a friend of mine says they are very good. I'm assuming they are served hot? I've always loved pickled beets. My husband and I have canned our own and they were great; however we decided that the Aunt Nellie's jarred in the store are excellent and cheap enough so we'll just buy them. Aunt Nellie's does make Harvard beets if you wanted to just buy them; however they wouldn't contain Splenda.
I would think you could find recipes online. Put Harvard beet recipe into a search at Google or ask.com. Also www.allrecipes.com is a great recipe site and you might find the recipe there.
Use any Harvard beets recipe and substitute Splenda. It tastes fine! (01/08/2007)
Searching on allrecipes.com using the ingredient search, I was able to find 3 different recipes. None of them have Spenda but instead have sugar, but from what I understand you can pretty much substitute Splenda for sugar in just about any recipe. Here's the links to the recipes I found, hope they help:
Hi Linda, check out recipezaar.com for a basic Harvard beets recipe and as others have noted, just sub Splenda for the sugar. BTW, I notice you're down here in my neck of the woods! I'm an ol' Green Woojun myself, and if you come up with a killer beet recipe you could call it "Lander Beets"! (Hey, Greenwood needs all the help it can get!) (01/08/2007)
Thanks so much for all the info. I remembered using the small whole beets in a can, but didn't remember using any vinegar.
And, Alph, I'm a former Lander gal. (01/09/2007)

I've always heard that Splenda and sugar are equal amounts in recipes - have you tried a regular recipe and just substituting the Splenda? (01/09/2007)

I use Splenda in everything--even Harvard beets. But if a recipe calls for 1 cup sugar, I use 2 cups Splenda. To me, the vinegar is overpowering if you don't use more sweetening to balance it. I've also found that using the packets rather than the measure for measure Splenda yields a sweeter product (each packet = 2 tsp.). (01/12/2007)
