This is a very simple recipe for pickled beets from Elizabeth Corkery, of Groton, Massachusetts. The cooking process prevents the bleeding usually associated with working with beets and is much easier than roasting beets in the oven and peeling them afterwards. These beets get better as they sit in the refrigerator. They look very pretty in a pressed glass dish. Note:
Leave part of the top stem and tail on beets to prevent them from bleeding during cooking. Golden beets or candy cane beets make a nice presentation with less bleeding. source unknown
