This recipe for Fresh Harvard Beets produces sweet-sour beets that have a beautiful bright color and a lovely smooth sauce that doesn't turn gummy.
Slice or dice the beets. In a double boiler, combine sugar, salt, vinegar, corn starch, and cloves. Cook the sauce until it is clear. Add the beets and heat over hot water for 30 minutes -- do not boil. Remove cloves and then add butter just before serving.
