Introduction

These canned beauties are the precursor to some killer Harvard Beets - simply drain and thicken the brine with cornstarch, heat and serve. They're not super sweet, but of course that depends on the type of beets you're using.

Ingredients

    1 lbs beets, topped and scrubbed
    2 cups apple cider vinegar
    2 tbsp dark honey (like buckwheat)
    ⅓ cup sugar
    tbsp Kosher salt
    tsp ground allspice
    tsp coarse-cracked black peppercorns
    tsp turmeric

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375F.
Wrap beets in foil and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake 50-60 minutes, until tender. Cool until you can handle them, then peel and cut into pieces (I used cylinder beets so I just cut slices).
In a large pot, combine the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil.
Add beets and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook 5 minutes.
Ladle into pint jars (top off with more vinegar if needed) and seal.
Can in a waterbath 30 minutes.
Let sit at least 2 days before enjoying - these get better as they age!
