DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot cook the unpeeled beets until fork-tender (do not overcook) cool and then remove the skins.
  • Slice into about 1/4-inch thick or cut into cubes.
  • Pack snuggly into the canning jars (be careful not to bruise).
  • In a large saucepan combine the sugar, water, vinegar, ground cloves, allspice, cinnamon and whole cloves; bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes (no sugar granules should remain).
  • Quickly pour over the beets in the jars, leaving 3/4-inch headspace (the liquid should go no further than the shoulder of the jar!).
  • Process in a boiling water bath for 12 minutes.
  • Cool on a rack.
