Harvard Beets are traditionally served hot as an accompaniment to pork chops, chicken, or steak. Also excellent chilled and served with a salad.

Harvard Beets are a classic American dish that's believed to have origins in Cambridge, Massachusetts due to its deep crimson color, which is also Harvard University's officially designated color since 1910. The dish is made with sliced beets that are cooked in a sweet-and-sour sauce. 

Ingredients: Sliced Beets, Beet Juice, Sugar, Water, Distilled Vinegar, Thermflo, Salt.

Manufactured in a facility that handles peanuts, eggs, and soy.

At Kitchen Kettle we refer to our jars using three standard sizes:

  • Half Pints - 8 ounces in volume
  • Pints - 16 ounces in volume
  • Quarts - 32 ounces in volume

We are required to label our jars with the actual net weight of the contents, rather than the volume. You'll notice our Half Pint jars will vary between 8 ounces and 10 ounces in net weight; our Pint jars range from 16 ounces to 20 ounces in net weight; and our Quart jars weigh between 32 and 36 ounces.

Why do the net weighs vary? Although we use the same size jar, a jam made with chunks of fruit will weigh more than a jelly that's made with just the juice of a fruit. 

If you have any questions about our jars sizes, we're happy to help! Give us a call at 800-717-6198 or email us at sales@kitchenkettle.com
