Pickled Beets With A Kick
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Vegetable Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • 4 medium beets
  • ½ small sweet onion
  • a small jalapeno pepper
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1½ teaspoon pickling spice
  • ½ teaspoon mustard seeds
  1. Trim the beet tops, peel and cut off the roots. Put the whole beets in a pan that will hold them all. Fill about a third of the way up with water and simmer over medium heat until the beets are tender. This should take about 30 minutes. You can test by pricking with a fork or sharp knife to make sure the beets are tender. Allow to cool.
  2. Slice the beets about ¼" thick. Slice the onions and the jalapenos very thin.
  3. While the beets are cooling, combine the apple cider vinegar, salt, sugars, pickling spice and mustard seed. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 2-3 minutes.
  4. Refrigerate overnight.
