One of my favorite things to do is visit my Amish neighbors. I love to eat at the Mennonite Buffet in Jamesport, Missouri. It has the yummiest food. I so love their pickled beets.
I searched my Grandmother's recipe box I found this recipe. I felt like I struck gold.( I was paying $8.oo for a quart.) I love this recipe. I just know you will too!
2 cups sugar
3-1/2 c. white vinegar
1-1/2 c. water
1 t. salt
1 T. cinnamon
1 T. allspice
4 16 oz. cans small whole beets drained
4 1-pint canning jars and lids
Combine sugar, vinegar, water, salt, and spices in a large kettle; bring to a boil over medium heat. Add beets. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes; cool. Pack into hot jars; cover with liquid. Store in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
