Mum's Beet Pickles
Mum always stored things in the coolest spots in the house - cupboards in the basement. Some things have to sit longer before eating them, but I'm sure we were eating things shortly after Mum made them. I'm not a canner, but I think I might try some jams and beet pickles just to see if I can can lol. Wash lots of jars!
Mum spoiled me for beet pickles. I have never found any, made or bought that come close.
How to Make Mum's Beet Pickles
- Clean and boil whole beets until tender
- Add a tbsp of pickling salt while cooking.
- Peel and cut or slice and put in sterilized jars.
- In a pot, add sugar, vinegar, water and pickling spices. Boil for 5 minutes and pour over beets in sterilized jars and seal. Store in a cool, dark place. We were eating them in 3 - 4 weeks and right up til the next canning season.
