"This won the Blue Ribbon in the Beet Bread competition at the Wisconsin State Fair. The winner was Linda Lilly. I have a lot of beets in my freezer and I decided to try this. It's really good. It said one cup of beets and I put in more like 1 1/4 cups. It says to shred and I didn't. I chopped the beets up, which added more moisture. I feel that I should probably have either shredded them or only added one cup of beets. FYI"
