DIRECTIONS

  • Sterilize jars.
  • Wash well and cook beets just until tender. Let cool and coarsely dice into rough 1 inch cubes or slices.
  • Mix sugar, water, vinegar salt and spices together and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for five minutes.
  • Place a 1/2 inch piece of cinnamon stick in each jar.
  • Fill with beets, leaving 1/2 inch space at the top. Poor hot brine over beets and seal.
  • Let sit for at least two weeks.
  • Note: Reserve the liquid from the beets and make my Old Fashion Beet Jelly Recipe (Recipe #469171) for a wonderful jelly for toast!
