Pickled Beets

Pickled Beets created by Ed  Cheryl

This is a recipe that has been passed down in my family from my great-grandmother, to my grandmother, to my mom, and now to me! I am so glad to have this family favorite! I have now become the designated "pickled beets" preparer in our family!

    Haven't tried them yet but wanted to add a note: Approx 5 lbs of beets will yield 8 pints. 5 cups sugar, 2.5 cups each (beet) water and vinegar.

    I canned beets with this recipe last year. It was the first time I canned beets. I can tell I never liked beets but, I could not get enough of these. My family and I were sad when we ran out of beets last year. So I planted beets in my garden this year and I am ready for more beets.

    Not to detract, but here's a few tricks and tips to embellish this basic beet recipe. Use real/true apple cider vinegar. Cider vineger is sold as 'Apple Cider Vinegar' or "Apple Cider FLAVORED VINEGAR'...stay away from the latter. It is white vinegar with caramel coloring and who knows what. Add a pinch of salt, and a few whole black peppercorns to the liquid you are boiling, and add a few black pepercorns to the jars before sealing. Vundabar!
