My Mom made these when I was a kid her bothers, brother-in-laws and friends always asked her to make some for them. I'm 64 so they've been around for a long time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. IMPORTANT! Leave the root and a couple of inches on the top of the beet until they are cooked. This will keep the color in them.
  2. Boil 4 quarts beets until tender. Remove skins, tops & roots.
  3. Combine above ingredients bring to a boil, boil 5 minutes. Add beets, let come to a full boil then pack into hot sterilized jars.
  4. If you want you can put spices into cheese cloth and toss when you are ready to pack into jars. I don't mind the spices in the jars, so I leave them in, I cut the cinnamon stick into fourths I think the flavor gets a little stronger.
