This recipe is similar to mine but a lot more work than mine, with sterilizing, etc. I simply buy a bunch of beets (usually 3 with the leaves). I peel them with potato peeler, cut them into bite size pieces, cover with water in pot, add 1/2 cup each sugar and vinegar, 1/2 to 1 tsp cloves, 1/4 tsp salt and cook over medium heat for half hour. Then I just put them in any container and store in refrigerator for up to 6 months. They are always great. I make them frequently so I don't have to can them. I then use the beet leaves chopped up in any ham soup (discarding stems). The leaves are delicious in soups and very little waste.
