A great way to preserve your homegrown beets! I love growing them in the garden and then enjoying them in the winter.
- 2 c. sugar
- 2 c. water
- 2 c. vinegar
- 1 tsp. salt
In a saucepan, cook beets in water until tender. Drain.
Pour cold water over beets and skin them by rubbing them between your hands.
Cut off the ends.
Dissolve sugar and salt into the water and vinegar.
Pour syrup onto beets.
Place your pickled beets into the refrigerator, stirring once in a while, at least a week before eating them. Give the beets a chance to “pickle” and develop flavor before eating.
These Refrigerator Pickled Beets will last a long time in the refrigerator, around 2 to 3 months.
