I have always used this old recipe & works great1 cup water, 1 cup vinegar, 1 cup sugar, !/2 to 1 teaspoon salt, boil & pour over beets in sterilized jars. Almost the same but the 1 cup of vinegar difference would be too much, the 1 Cup is perfect.

Hello,

Hoping someone has a suggestion for me. I processed 6 qts fresh beets in hot water bath. Gave a qt to a friend without tasting them myself. Got curious as to how they turned out & discovered that I used way too much vinegar and they are almost inedible. I've tried rinsing them several times and sprinkled a little sugar but they're not very good. What would you do? I have 4 qt left and not sure what to do, don't want to dump them, too much work!

Recipe for Pickled Beets

Hi Kimberly, you didn't say whether you are using canned beets or freshly cooked ones. I use the following for both. Liquid from 1 can of 16 oz sliced beets. Add water to liquid to make 1 cup . Add 1/2 cup vinegar , 1 cup sugar, 1 stick cinnamon . Bring to boil and pour over beets. Marinate several hours or overnight in refrigerator. Approx. 4 servings . This recipe can also be used for about 5-7 medium sized freshly cooked beets. Use the liquid you cooked the beets in. I usually cook fresh ones. They taste better. Dee (05/30/2002)

The recipe Dee sent in is basically the same one I use. Try using brown sugar, it gives them a flavor very like the ones I've had in Amish restaurants in Lancaster. - KayD (06/07/2002)

Kim, I make pickled beets and they are so good and easy. I use home canned beets that I have fixed with a brine of 1 cup vinegar, 1 cup sugar, and a dash of cayenne pepper. Oh so good!(05/13/2004)

That's how I make my beets too, but I add a few thin onion slices. Delicious. (01/20/2009)

I make something similar. White vinegar works just as well as apple cider vinegar--I'm sure that's what you meant by brown vinegar. I like to add 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon and a pinch of ground cloves. This tastes like the pickled beets that come in a jar from the supermarket. (01/20/2009)
