I usually just use cider vinegar, but you can ferment them too... My go to recipe that the kids gobble up taste a lot like the canned ones from the store, but a little zippier
Courtesy of the Blue Ball canning book lol, I've never had to use another one, since these are pretty delicious
• 3 quarts beets (double recipe if you have more)
• 2 C sugar
• 2 sticks cinnamon
• 1 Tblsp whole allspice
• 1 1/2 tsp salt
• 3 1/2 cups vinegar (use cider vinegar)
• 1 1/2 C water
I add 2 large white onions, sliced thin; and 1 tbsp of whole clove, too
And to process...
1.Wash beets, cook beets, peel and quarter beets.
2.Combine everything except beets in large sauce pot.
3.Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
4.Remove cinnamon sticks.
5.Pack beets into hot jars leaving 1/4″ headspace.
6.Ladle hot liquid over beets leaving 1/4″ headspace.
7.Remove air bubbles, then add lids and bands.
8.Process for 30 minutes in a hot water bath canner.
