Recipe by Lee Lee

Actually my mother used this recipe (except for the vodka--my contribution). Pennsylvania women have used it for years (except for the vodka).

Just what I have been looking for! Like instant pickled beets in thickened cider vinegar and sugar brine. The balance of sweet & sour is perfect. Will try the vodka next time.
