Easy Pickled Beets:
If you like pickled beets but have never made your own, I’m about to rock your world with this recipe. Today I’ve teamed up with my friends at Libby’s Fruits & Vegetables to create an Easy Pickled Beet Recipe with their Cut Beets that’s perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
Libby’s offers an excellent selection of convenient fruits and vegetables that are ideal for feeding a crowd without breaking the bank.
How to Make Pickled Beets Recipe:
Okay, back to my Easy Pickled Beets. What I love most about this recipe is that you start with Libby’s Cut Beets. This eliminates the time and mess of peeling and boiling beets. And, in my opinion, these easy pickled beets are equally tasty.
To begin, drain the juice from the beets then add them to a mason jar.
In a small saucepan, create the pickling juice by combining apple cider vinegar, sugar, salt, peppercorns and bay leaves. Bring that to a boil and cook for five minutes.
Then, pour the pickling juice over your beets. Yep, that’s all you have to do!
Lastly, put a lid on your jar and refrigerate the beets. They are pretty flavorful within an hour, but I recommend letting them sit at least overnight. For best results, refrigerate them a week before eating.
They will last about two months in your refrigerator, so if you make them now, you’re set for the entire holiday season. Not that there will be any left by then!
You can enjoy these beets however you like: straight out of the jar, paired with a cheeseboard, served as a Thanksgiving side, or scattered on a salad. They are delicious, so I’m sure you’ll find many ways to gobble them up.
