Peggi Anne's Story

I have been using this recipe for about 25 years now when our beets come off. We love them.

I got the recipe from a CANNING, PRESERVING,& FREEZING COOKBOOK (Favorite Recipes Of Home Economics Teachers) that I sold to my Mom when I was in Home Economics In 1974. She used this book & now it's mine. One of my favorites.

Ingredients

small whole uniform beets
3 cups water
1 cup vinegar
1 cup sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash beets thoroughly, leaving 2" of tops & roots.
2
Cook beets in boiling water to cover for about 15 minutes.
3
Plunge into cold water 2 times to prevent bleeding.
4
Remove skins & cut top off level & root.
5
Combine water, vinegar & sugar in large saucepan & bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
6
Add beets & heat, but do not boil.
7
Pack in sterilized jars. Cover with hot juice to neck of jar.
8
Place lids & bands on jars.
9
Process in hot water bath for 30 minutes.
10
Serve hot as a vegetable or cold on relish trays.

Peggi's note: I use larger beets sometimes , but just make sure when you cut them in half or quarter them that they are all the same size so they cook uniformly. We eat them cold as a side.

This recipe never said if you put them in quarts or pints, but I always can mine in pints.

How many beets are used for this recipe? How many pints can I plan on making with a single batch?
