Making pickled beets couldn't be simpler! Ball® & McCormick® Sweet and Tangy Bread & Butter Pickle Mix creates just the right balance of flavor to preserve your precious summer produce.
You Will Need
You Will Need
• 4 lbs. golden or red beets
• 2-1/2 cups sugar
• 2-1/2 cups white or cider vinegar
• 1 pkg. Ball® & McCormick® Sweet and Tangy Bread & Butter Pickle Mix
• 1 tsp. salt
• 2 Ball® (32 oz.) quart or 4 (16 oz.) pint glass preserving jars with lids and bands
1. Prepare boiling water canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil. Wash lids in warm soapy water and set aside with bands.
2. Trim beets, leaving 1-inch of stem scrub. Bring beets to a boil in water to cover in a large saucepan, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes or until just tender. Remove skins and cut beets into evenly sized wedges.
3. Combine sugar, vinegar, and spices from Pickle Mix in large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve.
4. Pack beets into hot jar. Ladle hot pickling liquid over beets, leaving ½-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Wipe rims and center lids on jars. Apply band and adjust to fingertip tight. Place jar in boiling-water canner. Repeat until all jars are filled.
5. Process both pints and quarts for 30 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Turn off heat; remove lid, and let jars stand 5 minutes. Remove jars and cool. For best flavor and texture, allow pickles to stand for 4 to 6 weeks on the pantry shelf before serving.
