Soft Pickled Red Beets

Soft Pickled Red Beets created by Jenny Sanders

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.

    Out of three recipes that I tried on this site, this one came in last. We like a sweeter pickled beet and different spices.

    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!
