This is my Grandmother Elsea's recipe and is one of my favorite things to can in the Fall. The recipe is easy and the beets are just right. Enjoy

3 jar(s)
plain whole beets
1/2 tsp
salt
3 c
white vinegar
3-4 c
white sugar
1/2 Tbsp
whole cloves
1 tsp
whole allspice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Drain the beets in a colander.
2
Heat vinegar, sugar and spices to a boil. *Add sugar to your taste, but it should be syrupy and sweet**
3
Add the drained beets to the boiling syrup. Return to a boil and take off heat.
4
Immediately put into hot quart canning jars. Screw on lids and caps, process according to your canner directions or Ball.com.

Brenda, I am so tickled ! These are so good, I love my cold right out of the frig. My grandmother Elsea turned 95 this year and is still cooking away, she is so amazing. I am so glad I could help bring back pleasant memories of your sweet grandmother in law. Funny how food can transport us back to another time and place.

Blessings, ~Angela

Angela, I too, am happy to find your recipe! My "grandmother-in-law" used to make these-but we called them spiced beets. I have looked for her recipe for years and decided to try this web site. Your recipe sounds exactly like hers. Thank you very much!!
