  • 12 Cups Prepared Beets
  • 2 Cups Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Organic Sugar
  • Variations: You can also add sliced onions if you wish.


  1. In a large saucepan combine water and vinegar and bring to a boil.
  2. Then add sugar and simmer to dissolve sugar.
  3. Now pack prepared beets into jars (I used pint jars), leaving 3/4 to 1 inch of headspace at the top of the jar.
  4. Pour fully dissolved sugar mixture over beets leaving 3/4 inch headspace.
  5. With clean cloth wipe around jar top to remove and spilled liquid, making for a good seal.
  6. Then place on warm jar lids with the rubber ring of the lid touching the jar. Then put on the rings.
  7. Place jars in canning pot and process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes. Also, you can process them in a pressure canner if you have one.
  8. Remove from canner and let cool.
  9. Now check for sealing before storing.
  10. If you have any jars that did not seal, they should be refrigerated.
