My mother and I had our first experience with pickled beets. We have both recently become big fans of pickled beets, especially on salads. When I was able to harvest quite a few I decided to try our very own pickling of beets! I decided to leave out the cinnamon and cloves that are in most pickled beets because I prefer them plain but here's our easy process:
|Boil whole until tender|
|Slice off top and bottom and peel. The peeling should come right off.|
|Mother opted for the gloves to avoid pink hands.|
|So beautiful. It only slightly looked like we |
massacred something on the countertop.
|We only had 5 pints and wanted to avoid water bathing, |
so this trick seals the lids and they will be fine in the fridge for a good while.
