Pickled Beets

20 MIN
1 H



  1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook the beets, covered, until they are tender, about 1 hour. Set aside 1 cup (250 ml) of filtered cooking water. Plunge the beets into cold water. Drain, peel and cut the beets into quarters or slices. Set aside.
  2. In another saucepan, bring the reserved cooking water, vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds and salt to a boil.
  3. Put the beets into sterilized jars and cover with the boiling marinade. Seal. Sterilize if desired (35 minutes in boiling water).


  1. Love this recipe. I make half, and it makes two fairly large jars, which is perfect. Only thing I would suggest is to wear rubber gloves and to peel the beets while they are still hot: the skin slides off more easily.
