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.

No one submitted this Nancy, this recipe comes from my collection of recipes (there are a lot of different sources in that collection such as auctions, ebay, garage sales).
