Delicious, nutritious, and loaded with many incredible health benefits, It’s time for all of us to “Beet it!” These Perfectly Picked Beets allow you to enjoy the fall harvest all year long. 

Ingredients

  •  2 pounds whole beets
  • 1 cup water
  • To taste salt
  • 3 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 quart size preserving jar

Preparation

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the beets in a small roasting pan. Add the water to the pan and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Place in the oven and cook until the beets are fork tender, about 1 hour.
  • 2 Remove from the oven and cool for 15 minutes, reserving the liquid. Remove the skins from the beets and slice 1/4 inch thick. Season the beets with salt.
  • 3 In a saucepan, heat the reserved beet juice and vinegar, over medium heat. Sterilize 1 quart-size preserving jar in boiling water and keep hot. Soak the lid in the boiling water and keep hot.
  • 4 Pack the jar tightly with the beets then pour its hot liquid over the beets, adding enough liquid to come within 1/2-inch of the top. With a clean, damp towel, wipe the rim of the jar to make sure it is perfectly clean then fit it with a hot lid.
  • 5 Tightly screw metal ring on jar then process in a hot-water bath for 15 minutes. Using tongs, remove jar and place on a towel and let slowly cool. Test seal, tighten ring and store in a cool, dry place. Let age for 2 weeks before eating.
  • 6 NOTE: If seal does not secure, place jar in refrigerator and consume within one month.
