I'll admit were not beet lovers here but my friend had extra beets from their garden and was over for dinner tonight so we used this recipe. They just loved it though I didn't try it cause I hate beets they just loved it so I printed out the recipe for them. Read More

Very good! Sweet beets and the sugar/vinegar/cinnamon really helped to diminish the earthy beet taste. Also, the vinegar isn't that strong once this is ready to eat. I used fresh beets from my garden, just boiled 'em for an hour or so until they were tender. Read More

after unsuccessfully scouring my kitchen for my grandmother's recipe for pickled beets I decided to come to allrecipes... and again wasn't disappointed. This is as close to grandma's as I've seen. The only change was that she always tossed in a few cloves... probably 1/2t or so. I just heard my kids in the basement "do you smell that? She's cooking beets again." so I must be doing SOMETHING right.:) Who cares if I'm the only one in the house who loves these? Thanks a bunch TasteKing! Read More

I am right this moment enjoying my pickled beets. I did feel like the beets themselves got lost in the cinnamon-ness though so when I make this again (which I will definitely do) I'll probably cut that down. I used fresh beets which I boiled in their skins until soft then peeled and sliced using the cooking liquid as my base. I also added onions to the brine. Thanks! Read More

These were really great! We liked the spices and accidentally used some rutabegas (I think I spelled that wrong) because we thought they were beets too but it was all good! Read More

OK this is the first time I have ever made pickled beets. My mother used to make her own all the time and my husband always loved them. As I am not a beet fan I decided to try making them. These taste just like my mother s and my husband was ecstatic about this recipe thank you for this once again memory making recipe. Read More

I made these last night to serve. Followed the recipe exactly and they are delicious. I will definitely be making these again but I think I will add a little onion next time. Read More
