Pickled beets

Recommended Posts

We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim

Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago...

EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart)

  • 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed
  • 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings
  • ½ cup liquid from boiled beets
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • ½ cup honey – go local!
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves

Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside.

While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil.

Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.

You can also cook them on the grill at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or so until they are tender. I cook them in  disposable aluminum pans and use tin foil for a cover offset from the fire. Pretty much baking them, I don't like to heat up my house so I do it all outdoors.  Mmmm pickled beets!

I like that idea, only on the smoker grill I'm thinking.......

I've never tried it but maybe a guy could peel the beets, cold smoke for a couple hours in a disposable aluminum pan. Then crank up the heat and cover with foil to cook tender. Maybe they would bleed out  without skins? Any juices could go right into the mix. I have plenty of beets to experiment with, I'm going to have to try it now. Smomed pickled beets mmmm!

I couldn't find a recipe anywhere online for pickling raw  beets (unless just refrigerator beets) so I must have been mistaken and will just cook them first!  Love them pickled but not so much just cooked!  Thanks for ALL the comments! :)
