Heres a basic canning recipe I found

4-1/2 to 5 pounds small fresh beets

3 cups sugar

2 cups water

2 cups white vinegar

1 small onion, sliced

1/2 teaspoon canning salt

4-1/2 teaspoons mixed pickling spices

Directions:

Remove and discard greens and all but 1/2 in. of the stems from the beets. Cook beets in boiling water for 35 minutes or until tender; drain. Peel and slice.

In a Dutch oven, combine the sugar, water, vinegar, onion and salt. Place pickling spices on a double thickness of cheesecloth; bring up corners of cloth and tie with string to form a bag. Add to pan. Bring to a boil. Add beets. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Discard spice bag. With a slotted spoon, pack beets into pint jars to within 1/2 in. of top. Ladle vinegar mixture over beets, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Adjust caps. Process for 30 minutes in a boiling-water bath. Remove jars to a wire rack to cool completely.

I never canned beets but make a mean pickled egg that has beets in it and the beets are delish, especially if I use fresh ones out of my dads garden, boiled semi-soft first.

Heres that recipe

This would be one to try not canned, just in a container in the fridge for a few days...

There are a ton of recipes out there if ya do some searches. Some sweet, some salty and some easy, some complicated...

You pressure canning or water bath?

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
