Simple, Easy Pickled Beets

Print PrintShare with Friends

Prep:

During the winter when fresh beets are not available, this is what I make. You can use beets out of the garden, just cook them, peel and slice them and reserve some of the juice that you cook them in. I love the way these taste. And they will keep in an airtight container in the 'fridge for quite a while.
