    Satisfied Kris's Note:

    Old family recipe. You just can't eat store bought canned beets after tasting these. May also can this recipe, but multiply ingredients. It's not worth canning just one jar. :) Estimated prep time includes cleaning, skinning and cutting.

      Mmmmm.... These might be the best beets I've ever had let alone made. They're a great balance of tart and sweet. I like that they're on the savory side. Let's face it, the amount of sugar that most recipes call for is really unhealthy. You don't need it when beets can be this good without it. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I'm making a second batch as we speak.

      This is the first year we've grown beets so it's the first time I pickled them. I chose this recipe because it uses less sugar than most and followed it exactly. The beets are great! They tasted good when we first opened them and seem to get better all the time. Thank you so much!

      This is very, very similar to how I have been making pickled beets for the last few years. I tried a lot of recipes before I found the one I like. I have a slightly heavier hand with the spices, and I use just a little less sugar. However, this recipe avoids what to me is the worst fault in pickled beets - way too much sugar. They just need a touch! Try these, they are great. If you can these, which is what I do, be aware that the clove flavour will get stronger and stronger with time as they sit.
