Easy Pickled Beets Recipe
We love canning very, very much here at Noshing With The Nolands and have many successful recipes that I will share with you along with today’s Easy Pickled Beets Recipe.
Pickled beets are one of my favorites besides roast beets. I love beets as a side dish with a quick lunch of cheese and crackers and maybe a pickle or two also. Ken is not a huge fan but he was actually the one pickling these beets for me today.
I love that he selected not only red beets but orange ones too. You can’t blend them together as the red ones will make everything red but try some different colors when you are canning. They are so pretty together.

How to Pickle Beets
Pickling beets require some basic ingredients, vinegar, salt, spices, and sugar. Most recipes ask for sugar. I don’t like them too sweet but just enough to balance the vinegar.
As for spices, it is more of a mixture than with other “pickled” recipes. For this one, we used mustard seeds, star anise, cloves, black peppercorns, and coriander seeds. This is a good combination for sweet beets.
I have been looking for a recipe for a while and really liked my girlfriend Jill’s pickled beets. She had used the Canadian Living recipe so I followed along with only minor changes; it really didn’t need too many revisions.
