I love me some pickled beets. So sweet. They are such a pretty addition to a bland winter plate. And beets are loaded with nutrition, though the amoun...
Any dark purple variety will do. These happen to be Cylindra. This is 7 1/2 pounds of beets (not including the weight of the leaves).
Leave the tails and about a half inch of the stems attached. This is to keep all of the color and nutrients from bleeding out while they cook.

Using a clean, damp cloth, wipe the top rim of the jar...where the lid meets the jar, not where the ring screws on. You don't want any food particles...
Place a hot lid on top of the jar and screw on a ring, nice and tight. Not too tight but it should be snug.
Repeat steps 13, 14, and 15 until all the beets are jarred up. Let them sit on the counter to cool completely (over night is best). Remove the rings ...
