How to cook:
  1. Wash the beets and remove most of the tops, leaving about 1/2 inch of beet top remaining.In a large boiling pot of water, cook the beets until barely tender.Remove from the stove.
  2. Submerge the beets in a large bowl of ice water, I find this helps the skins come off with more ease.
  3. Cut off the tops and the roots completely, then remove the skin.Peel and slice beets into preferred size, I like larger chunks and not slices.
  4. Combine the vinegar, sugar, water, salt and pickling spice in a nonreactive pot and bring mixture to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer 10 minutes.
  5. Add the beets to the pickling liquid and return to a boil.Remove the spice bag.Carefully ladle the beets and pickling liquid into hot sterilized pint jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.
  6. Remove any air bubbles with a non-metal utensil.Add additional pickling liquid, if needed, to keep the proper headspace.
  7. Wipe the jar rims thoroughly with a clean damp cloth, failure to do this can result in the jars not sealing properly!
  8. Seal the jars and process for 35 minutes in a boiling water bath.
  9. For altitudes higher than 3000 ft (914 m), add 5 minutes to processing time.

Provided by: Ashley Adamant
Total time: 70 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Prep time: 30 minutes
Yields: 4 servings
Cuisine: Preserves
Number of ingredients: 9
Ingredients:
  • 4 lbs Beets (2 to 2 1/2 inch Diameter)
  • 2 cups Vinegar (White or Apple Cider)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 12 to 16 cloves (3-4 per pint)
  • 12 to 16 allspice berries (3-4 per pint)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 onion, sliced
How to cook:
  1. Prepare beets by boiling until tender, roughly 20 to 25 minutes for small beets.
  2. Strain beets (discarding liquid) and allow them to cool. Cut off tops and roots, then peel with finger pressure.
  3. Slice beets (or leave whole) and pack into pint jars. Add 3-4 cloves and allspice berries to each jar, along with a slice or two of onion.
  4. If canning, prepare a water bath canner by warming the water to roughly 140 degrees F. (This is a cold pack recipe, for hot pack see notes.)
  5. In a clean pot, add vinegar, water, sugar, salt, and a cinnamon stick. Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer 5 minutes, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat and discard the cinnamon stick.
  6. Pour the brine over the beets in the jars, maintaining a 1/2 inch headspace. Cap with 2 part lids, tightening to finger tight.
  7. If canning, process the pickled beets for 30 minutes (under 1000 feet in elevation), starting the timer once the canner has reached a full rolling boil. See notes for altitude adjustments.
  8. For refrigerator pickled beets, skip the canning step and simply allow the jars to cool to room temperature on a towel on the counter before storing in the refrigerator.

Are extra beets taking over the back of your refrigerator? Break up that rabble and put them to good use with this delightfully simple pickling recipe!
Provided by: Rachel (Simple Seasonal)
Yields: 6 servings
Number of ingredients: 12
Ingredients:
  • 1 bunch red beets (about 1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced white onions
  • 1 piece of cheesecloth
  • 1 piece piece of butcher\'s twine
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 4 allspice berries
  • 1/4 whole grain mustard seeds
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
How to cook:
  1. Cook beets by cleaning, wrapping in foil and baking in a 400º oven for 45 min to 1 1/2 hours, depending on the size of the beets. They are done cooking when they begin to feel soft when you squish them (they're hot - use an oven mitt). Allow to cool for about an hour before you begin the pickling process. If you're in a hurry you can also find precooked beets in the refrigerator section of many grocery stores.
  2. Make a spice pouch to flavor your pickling juice by doubling over a piece of cheesecloth, placing your cinnamon stick, whole cloves, allspice berries, and mustard seeds in the middle. Bring the corners of the cheesecloth together and tie with butcher's twine.
  3. To make the pickling juice, in a large saucepan combine white vinegar, water, organic cane sugar, salt, and spice pouch. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. While the pickling juice is simmering, peel and rinse the cooked beets and cut into 1/8 inch slices. Also thinly slice your white onions.
  5. After the pickling juice has simmered for 5 minutes add the sliced beets and onions to the saucepan and bring back up to a simmer, then remove from the heat.
  6. Allow the beets to cool, remove the spice pouch, and pour the pickled beets into a glass jar. Store covered at the back of your fridge for up to one month, but I doubt they'll last that long!
