I've loved beets since I was a child, and so does my husband. These are his favorite, during the summer when our beets are still growing.

Since it's too early to start canning beets, I have an alternative method so you can enjoy pickled beets all summer and all year long!

The directions are explained by using one can of beets. I didn't want to make the directions complicated.
