° 10 lb beets
° 2 cups vinegar
° 2 cups sugar
° 2 cups water
° 1 teaspoon salt
° 1 teaspoon marinated spices
° 2 teaspoons whole cloves
Wash and cook the beets until the centre of the beet is tender. Peel and cut into 1-inch-diameter pieces. Place the pieces in hot sterilized jars.
In a saucepan, add the vinegar, sugar, water and salt. In a piece of cotton fabric, add the marinated spices and whole cloves. Close the fabric so that the spices do not come out. Put in the saucepan. Boil for 5 minutes.
Pour the liquid over the beets.
Close the pots and boil for 10 minutes.
The recipe gives about 12 pots.
