I make pickled beets every year at this time. with boiled eggs in them. I have a pointer for you to try if you wish. Use red wine vinegar in place of the white vinegar. The delicate flavor is awesome with pickled beets. :)

Gaynel, sounds great! I have so many different vinegars.

My Mom always had pickled beets in the fridge, but made them with artificial sweetener. I'm wondering if they wouldn't be great with tarragon vinegar? Hummmmm..... Thanks for posting the recipe. Haven't had them in years but will be making some up real soon!

These are easy and fast. I haven't tried other vinegars or flavors but it should taste good to you.
