Ingredients

  • For the Pickled Beets:
  • 2 pounds 2 (about 6-8 medium-sized) beets, trimmed and scrubbed

  • 2 cups 2 white vinegar

  • 1 cup 1 water

  • 1 cup 1 granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon 1 salt

  • 1 teaspoon 1 whole black peppercorns

  • 4 4 -6 whole cloves

  • 2 2 -3 bay leaves

Directions

  • Place the trimmed and scrubbed beets in a large pot and cover them with water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook for 30-40 minutes or until the beets are tender when pierced with a fork.
  • Drain the cooked beets and let them cool until they can be handled.
  • Once the beets are cool, peel them by gently rubbing off the skin with your fingers or using a small knife. Cut the beets into your desired shapes, such as slices, wedges, or cubes.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the white vinegar, water, granulated sugar, salt, whole black peppercorns, whole cloves, and bay leaves. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring until the sugar and salt are fully dissolved.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer the pickling liquid for 5-7 minutes to infuse the flavors. Remove it from heat and let it cool slightly.
  • Place the peeled and sliced beets into clean, sterilized jars or containers.
  • Carefully pour the pickling liquid over the beets, ensuring they are completely submerged.
  • Seal the jars or containers tightly with lids.
  • Allow the pickled beets to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate them for at least 24 hours before serving to allow the flavors to meld.
  • Enjoy your Healthy Pickled Beets as a side dish, salad topping, sandwich ingredient, or snack!
