Debby's Quick Pickled Beets

CSA member Debby shares this recipe and says it is fast, good tasting (all that sugar) and doesn't heat up the kitchen.  Perfect for summer beets!

  • 1 bunch of beets
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2. cup vinegar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 - 6 whole allspice berries
  • 3/4 cup water

Boil your beets whole until just tender.  Peel and slice. Bring vinegar, sugar, spices, and water to a boil, stirring until sugar has dissolved.  Add beets & onions to liquid and bring back to boil. Pour into jars.  Put on lid.  Let cool. Refigerate and eat.
