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.

I used fresh beets instead of canned, just boiled them for about 10 minutes before continuing with recipe. Loved it!!

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!

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!!
