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.

How to Make CANNED HARVARD BEETS (SWEET)

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.
  11. 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.
