Harvard Beets

I am not sure why this recipe is called Harvard beets.

Were they invented in Harvard MA? If you know, please use the comment form below to let us all know.

Whatever they are called, this beet recipe is very easy to make and will bake in the oven as you prepare other things.

Beets are an underused vegetable. They are sweet and delicious.

Beets are a hard vegetable and do take a bit of time to cook. It is definitely worth it though.

This recipe is a wonderful way to use up leftover beets. The combination with apples and onions is a good mix. Add a bit of sugar if you have very tart apples to sweeten them up just a touch.

Overall, this is a very healthy vegetable recipe. It is a good diabetic recipe too. Yes beets are higher in sugar, but this recipe is quite healthy and you really do need a variety of vegetables in your diet. I would obviously add the lemon juice and not the sugar.
