Default Wanted: Harvard Beets with Splenda

I am desperately searching for this recipe. I found it ages ago and misplaced it. It is made using the small whole beets in a can. My husband and I are watching our refined sugar intake and I would like to make this side dish again. Thanks for any help!!

Here's a recipe I've been using for quite awhile:

1 16 oz. can sliced beets, drained, reserving juice
1/4 cup beet juice
1/4 cup Splenda
2 tsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup vinegar
1 Tbl. reduced calorie margarine (I use Promise light)

In a medium saucepan, mix the beet juice, Splenda, cornstarch, vinegar and margarine and stir until thick. Add drained beets and stir until they are hot throughout.

Or course, you can use whole beets, but I think I might warm them in the microwave first, since prolonged heat may affect the Splenda.
