These pickled beets are quick and easy to prepare, and no canning is required. The recipe makes a small 6-serving batch of quick pickled beets.

Instead of boiling the beets, roast them in the slow cooker.


Steps to Make It

  1. Wash beets well; cut off leaves about an inch above beets.

  2. Cook the beets in boiling water for about 30 to 40 minutes, or until tender. Cool; rub off skins, trim, and slice.

  3. Combine sugar and vinegar in a medium saucepan. Tie spices in a small piece of cheesecloth and place in a saucepan. Simmer for 15 minutes; add sliced beets and bring to a boil.

  4. Discard spices and chill thoroughly before serving.

Serves 6.
