Grandma Edith’s Pickled Beets
I’ve by no means been a giant fan of beets. I’m additionally very allergic to one thing in candy pickle spice. My Grandmother found I might eat beets in the event that they have been made this fashion. She would serve them heat for dinner, then put them again within the liquid, refrigerate them then serve them chilly for lunch the following day! What I like concerning the simplicity of this recipe is that you simply get to style the beets and never all of the spices. Nice to serve on salads.
Equal quantities (1/4 cup or 1/3 cup or 1/2 cup measurements relying on quantity of beets being served) of the next: vinegar, water and sugar. Peel and slice or dice beets. Prepare dinner till tender.
Kyle, Jerry and Jacquie
