Here’s an undated, handwritten recipe on a white lined index card. The front lists the recipe for Red Beet Jelly, the back lists the recipe for Beet Juice (notice the name “Martha” in the top right corner). I’ve typed the recipes below as well as scanned the front of the card.
Red Beet Jelly
6 cups beet juice
1/2 cup real lemon
2 pkgs sure jell
Bring to boil
Mix in 9 oz raspberry jello
8 cups sugar
Add to above
Boil hard 6 mins
6 to 8 large beets
Peel thin–slice & cook til tender
Use enough water to cover beets when put on to boil.
