"I'm told no good Dane or Swede considers a meal complete without these tangy treats. They add gorgeous color to any table. If you want to use fresh beets, peel and cook them. They can be served sliced or diced. Otherwise, just open a can like I do. Serve with slices of hard-boiled eggs."

OMGoodness! thank you thank you thank you! My Aunt Sharon makes homemade pickeld beets and I cant get enough of them. When they are gone the store bought pickled beets dont even come close, but ...

Fantastic! Could be a little sweeter though. Maybe a little more sugar?

This is a perfect ratio of sugar, vinegar and water. Boil mixture for a few minutes, add some cinnamon and add to boiled sliced beets and it will keep in fridge for as long as you can keep from...

I love the flavor just the way it is. Can this recipe be canned?
