Freezable Sides: Pickled Beets
This is one of my favorite holiday sides from my mother’s family gatherings. I’m one of a few that like them so I usually end up making them. I received some fresh beets in my Happy Box last week so I decided to double this recipe and add the fresh beets.
- 15 ounces canned beets
- 0.125 teaspoons cloves
- 0.25 cups vinegar
- 0.25 cups sugar
- 0.25 teaspoons cinnamon
Save the drained juice from the can of beets an place it in a small saucepan. Add remaining ingredients, except beets and bring to a boil. Pour boiled liquid over beets. Chill for several hours.
(I doubled this recipe and used fresh beets. If using fresh beets, you should cook them first)
Leave at least 1/2 inch head space in the storage container and freeze. Thaw when ready to serve.
