Canning Pickled Beets

Beets are easy to grow and beetroots are easy to preserve.  Potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, iron; vitamins A, B & C; beta-carotene, beta-cyanine; folic acid are but a few of the many nutrients, vitamins and minerals that can be found in beets.

The easiest way I have found to preserve beetroots is to pickle and can them.  The tops normally are eaten right away. Here is a recipe for pickling beetroots.  This recipe makes 7 pints of canned beets.

  • 10-12 pounds of beets
  • 1 quart cider vinegar
  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons pickling salt

Cut the tops and bottoms of the beets and wash them thoroughly. …
