BoBtanical Pantry: Beets
RAPID CITY, S.D. – Now that your harvest is in, it’s time to put that bounty to good use! Master Gardener Mel Glover has some tips that you just can’t beet!
Yields: 8 pints
4 cups vinegar
4 cups sugar
2 cups beet juice
2 cinnamon sticks
24 whole cloves
Boil beets and add a pinch of salt about 10 minutes before they’re tender. When done, peel and slice beets.
In a pan, combine all ingredients except for the beets and simmer for 15 minutes. This will make a syrup.
Pack beets in jars. Pour on hot syrup. Seal for 30 minutes.
