My mom makes her own pickled sliced beets all the time. I know she boils them first, and she doesn't trim them beforehand so the color doesn't all leak out as you're boiling them. When they're done (check by piercing with a fork at the thick part) she drains and peels them, then slices them. The canning part I'm not sure about, I'll have to ask her what she puts in the liquid (I'm sure there's some vinegar and salt, but I don't know what else. Cloves, maybe?). I know she boils the liquid and then pours it hot over the sliced beets already stacked in the jars.

I'll come back to this post to share the details of the liquid.

Oh wow thanks for the wonderful childhood memories. I remember one year my mom was in the hospital I guess having my little sister, and it was beet pickling time. My dad had beets all over the walls, floors, kitchen, it looked like a massacre of someone with purple blood!!!! I like cinnamon in mine ... I'm gonna check back for a recipe, maybe I will brave some.

These are very good. I used to use the canned beets and do my own until I discovered Aunt Nellie's. I looked for my recipe (which was out of one of those old, old, old church book compilations) but couldn't find it. I remember it called for sugar, vinegar, and cornstarch, which I always thought was odd, but they were very good.

I have never lived where they grow beets but I love them.. This is my favorite way to make them.. I want to add, I had these one time in a caferteria and LOVED them and searched for years for this recipe....

Sweet and Tangy Beets

3- 16 ounce cans of beets
6 tbs sugar
2 1/2 tbs cornstarch
3 tbs Vinegar 3 tbs, butter (omit for low fat diet)

In medium sauce pan combine the sugar and cornstarch, mix well. Add the juice from the beets and cook until thick. Add the beets and vinegar, stir and they are ready to eat! (These are good warm or cold!)

Laura.....you recipe looks a great deal like the way I make "Harvard Beets" and I do love them and havent had them in a long time....the pickled beets that I am used to...are in a sweet/tart juice but it isnt thickened....and has rings of sweet onion pickled with the beets....and perhaps some pickling spices. (not sure about the pickling spice).

I've used Alton Brown's recipe with great success.

My favorite way to eat them is as a salad, julienned with blue cheese crumbles and chopped walnuts.
