Beet relish, made with beets, cabbage, horseradish, vinegar, and onions, along with sugar and salt, goes well on a salad or sandwich, with roasts, or by the spoonful. 


  • 4 cups raw beets (chopped)
  • 6 cups cabbage (chopped)
  • 2 cups onions (chopped)
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 cups vinegar

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a large kettle.

  3. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until thickened, stirring occasionally.

  4. Pack into hot sterilized jars and process for 20 minutes in a boiling water bath.


A general rule for higher elevations, from Colorado State University Cooperative Extension:

  • Because of the lower boiling point of water at high altitude, increase the processing time 1 minute for every 1,000 feet above sea level if the time is 20 minutes or less. If the processing time is more than 20 minutes, increase by 2 minutes per 1,000 feet.
