Easy Pickled Beets

Posted on

Growing up, we ate a lot of pickled okra and pickled beets and I still have a taste for both.  I’ve never seen pickled beets for sale in the store like I have okra, but it doesn’t matter because they’re so easy to make.    If you’ve never had them, try this simple recipe and see if it suits you.  I like eating them pickled so much more than plain!

Printable recipe

1 can sliced beets
3 Tablespoons vinegar (I use apple cider or white)
3 Tablespoons sugar (I use Splenda to make them sugar-free)

Drain the juice from the beets into a pint size jar or another container.  Stir in the vinegar and sweetener until dissolved.  For Splenda, this is instant but you may have to let it sit a while if you use sugar.  Add the sliced beets, twist on the lid and refrigerate at least a few hours before eating.  These will last several weeks in the fridge if you don’t eat them all within a few days like I do. Enjoy!

  2. My dad used to make pickled beets when I was a kid — I loved them! He also used to make pickled eggs, which were kind-of weird, lol.

    • It was my Grandpa that used to make them and he was also the one that got me hooked on pickled okra–he bought 10 gallon jars of them from Sams Club. We’d eat one of those suckers in a week max. I have yet to eat a pickled egg but I really want to. Since I don’t go to bars and don’t want to buy a huge jar, I have a feeling I’l have to make them myself.

  3. My grandma in Germany used to make pickled beets all the time but I was the only one of my sisters who would actually enjoy eating them. Maybe it’s time to make my own. Thank you for bringing me a smile and a wonderful memory of my grandma with this post!

    • I love this, it seems a lot of us had a relative that made these for us that gave us a fondness for them. For me it was my Gramps. I’m sure these aren’t nearly as good as your Grandma’s but they work in a pinch. I bet you can come up with a more authentic recipe and I hope you share if you do!
