°10 lb beets
°1 cup water
°2 tablespoons coarse salt
°2 1/2 cups sugar
°5 cups white vinegar
Boil the beets until tender (30-45 mins).
Filter and keep 1 cup of cooking water.
Drain the beets, peel them and cut them to taste (in slices, quarters or whole).
Heat cooking water, salt, sugar and vinegar over medium/high heat until sugar is completely dissolved.
Sterilize 4 jars of 1 liter (or the equivalent in jars of 500 ml.) and fill them with beets.
Pour the liquid up to the edge of the jar and seal well.
