"Sweet and spicy; and the juice makes an excellent marinade for pickled eggs. This recipe is great with freshly cooked beets instead of canned, if you have time." — Bea

2 1/2 cups
sliced canned beets, juice reserved
apple cider vinegar
I used this recipe to can over half the beets in my garden. I think the pickling mixture is perfect and wouldn't change a thing!
Soooooo easy! I think I did this in under 10 minutes. BTW - 2 1/2 cups is 2 14.5 oz cans worth of sliced beets.
I used fresh beets from my garden, steamed them until tender, then put them in a large bowl of cold water, and had no pink fingers by peeling them underwater! Otherwise my hands turn beet red!
I also used one of those rippled french fry cutters to slice them - a simple hand held tool.
I canned some in pint jars (made 4 pints),
and will enjoy beets in the dead of winter.
This recipe is tasty- just the right spice mix.
This is a wonderful recipe -- it reminds me of my grandmother's homemade pickled beets. I used fresh beets, boiled about 15 min, then peeled, and I added some hardboiled eggs. I marinated everything for a couple of days to make sure it really got that flavor!
Absolutely delicious! I wouldn't change a thing on this recipe except I continued cooking the mixture about 1 or 2 minutes after adding the onion to soften a bit. I will make this again and share the recipe with pride.
I don't think I have ever eaten beets before. My avid gardener Aunt brought me some fresh from her garden and I made this recipe. YUM! I know the recipe calls for canned beets, but I needed to use mine! I found another recipe describing cooking beets (boil for 45 minutes, rinse in cold water so the skins peel right off...which they did!) Be sure to save some of the water from boiling the beets to serve as the beet juice needed in recipe. I had red all over my kitchen...new appreciation for the term "beet red!" but it cleaned up easily and the beets taste surprisingly great. Kind of exotic tasting with the spices. Thanks for opening up my thinking to beets!
This is an excellent recipe for beet lovers. I added a cinnamon stick to the recipe. I also add hard boiled eggs along with the beets and onions.
These are delicious! Personally, I double up on the spices, but they definitely get better and more flavorsome the longer you leave them! The onion tastes absolutely fantastic too. Thanks so much, Bea!
