Simmer beet juice, sugar, vinegar, and spices. Add beets; boil gently a few minutes. It seems the longer these set, the better they taste.

I would like to make simple beet pickles from canned beets.
By Janet from GA
Hi Janet, This is my sweet pickling mixture. I make it up and keep it in a half-gallon jar, then use it as needed to make my sweet pickles using Kosher Dills or our favorite pickled beets.
1 Quart apple cider vinegar
20 whole all spice berries
5-6 cups sugar ( I use 6 or more)
Place all ingredients in a stainless steel pot and heat to boiling; stirring all the while to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat allow to cool. Keep it in a glass or plastic bottle or jar...no need to refrigerate. I just keep it in the cabinet and use it as needed.
If you need to make instant pickled beets, place beets in a stainless steel pot and add sweet vinegar just to cover. If you don't like it as tart, then add some of the beet juice and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 20 minutes covered. Remove from heat and allow to cool. You may refrigerate now, or serve immediately. If the beets are sliced, they should be plenty pickled to suit you. Refrigerate all leftovers along with the liquid. You can add more to it just by adding a little more of the prepared sweet vinegar and another can of drained beets. Keep refrigerated until the next pickled beet attack.
One of us will always drink all the leftover beet liquid. Hope this helps. Julia
Easy pickled beets
1 (14.5 oz) can small beets (Not the pickled kind)
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 t. ground cloves
1/4 onion coarsely chopped
Drain & discard the juice from the beets and place beets in a bowl. In a pan, combine sugar, vinegar, cinnamon, cloves and onion.
Bring to a boil and cook for a few minutes, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Pour the mixture over the beets; let cool, then cover and refrigerate for one day before serving. Serve chilled beets.
