These are quick and easy to make. You'll want to snack on them right out of the jar. They're much more flavorful than those bland sliced beets you see on salad bars.

This recipe was perfect! My neighbor gave me some beets I baked them at 325 for an hour let them cool a bit and then used this recipe. I wanted a recipe that didn't need pickling spices because I didn't have that on hand....this was exactly like grandmas! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I love these! I'm a big fan of pickled beets, but they are expensive in the stores. These are great and I wouldn't change a thing. Since I like them so well, I doubled the recipe. They are really good!! Read More

These were delicious. I used fresh beets. I will make them again. Don't forget to remove the cloves before serving....I missed one and my brother-in-law got an unpleasant surprise. AFTER MAKING MANY MORE TIMES: I don't use whole cloves, I use about a tsp of powdered cloves. I am asked for this recipe over and over. I always use fresh beets. Read More

I was looking for something similar to my mother's pickled beets. I had to add more sugar to get the taste I wanted. The cinnamon added a pleasant surprise! Read More
