Homemade Pickled Beets provide lively color as well as lively taste to any meal.


  • quarts cooked and peeled small beets
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pickling salt
  • 1 tablespoon whole allspice
  • 3-1/2 cups vinegar
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 2 whole cinnamon sticks


To cook beets, wash and drain them, leaving 2 inches of stems and the taproots. Cover with boiling water and cook until tender. Set aside. Combine remaining ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes. Pack beets into jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace, cutting large beets in half if necessary. Remove cinnamon sticks from brine. Bring brine to a boil and pour over beets, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Cover and process for 30 minutes in a boiling-water bath.
