This is a recipe I got from my sister. I always lose it and phone her every year to get it again. Now it should be easier to find!! I like this recipe as there is no water in it and just the right amt. of sugar and spice.
- 3 pints small beets
- 1 1⁄2 cups vinegar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon pickling salt
- 2 tablespoons pickling spices (size of golf ball)
- Boil beets until tender.
- Peel in cold water.
- Drop into hot sterilized jars.
- Boil brine for 1 minute.
- Pour over beets and seal.
- Note: I usually put spice in a tea ball and discard the spice after boiling.
Just the right tartness - Iadded some black peppercorns & onions. I cut the recipe back to 1 pint - We are really enjoying them!
