About this recipe: A simple and easy way to make your own pickled beetroot. Beetroots are boiled until tender, then pickled in vinegar with whole cloves. Use in recipes that call for pickled beetroot.
Pickling salt is available in speciality shops or online. Alternatively, you can use sea salt instead, although this may not work as well and will give a cloudy appearance.

This is a quick and easy recipe and works well. It was my first foray into pickling so I was relieved to have good results. The only changes I made was to add some whole mustard seeds to the jars and I used sea salt which did not turn the jars cloudy. I will be making this again. - 21 Nov 2015

Beets were great. I've made them several times. The only change I made was to add some sliced red onion. - 28 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
