    Lali's Note:

    I know there are a "select few" who will say this is NOT how to can beets. This is the recipe my Mother-in-law, her Mother and grandmother, my Great grandmother, my Grandmother, my Mother and I have ALWAYS used. As with any thing we can, the food and the jars and lids have to be BOILING HOT for them to seal properly. I could eat my weight in these things.

      A few of the comments here are dead wrong and I'm pointing them so someone who doesn't know any better is not led astray. The purpose of the boiling water bath is not to seal the's to destroy any possible pathogens on the beets or inside the jars or lids. Repeat: A hot water bath is not to seal the jars! Luckily, this recipe has enough vinegar in it that that alone is probably what makes it safe. With highly acidic foods likes pickles and often tomatoes, or with foods containing a lot of sugar (like jam), you may get by without making yourself or someone else sick, but don't even think about trying that with non-acidic foods or your "time saving" strategy may just come back to bite you you-know-where.

      The (U. S.) National Center for Home Food Preservation recommends that for safety pickled beets in jars be processed in a boiling water bath for 30 to 45 minutes, depending upon your altitude. For more info on iome canning their web site is at
