Swedish Pickled Beets

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Sharon123

Adapted from House & Garden, 1964! Easy and tasty! A Scandinavian table is seldom without them. You can use canned beets for this.

Update, still delicious, added some dill and yellow mustard seed to this too. I can see why it was a 2009 favorite! After only 6 hours they taste like 6 stars, cant wait for 12. Phenomenal and easy. I think bc of the vinegar they could be water processed too which allows putting up a lot. I used a can of small rosebud beets, but kept the liquid the same so it covered them completely in the jar. Oh so good.
