If you like beets, you HAVE to make this recipe. If you think beets are just okay, not necessarily great, you HAVE to make this, too, and in turn you will start falling in love with beets.
How could you not? The combination of the sweet taste of beets, made even sweeter with honey, cinnamon and allspice, all preserved in vinegar? Opening a jar of this colorful treat in dreary February will have your heart sing with joy and your palette delight in the earthy flavor of summer and fall.
I have made this recipe every year for over a decade, and my kids have loved eating these pickled beets from a very early age.
Beets are an ancient, prehistoric food with lots and lots of health benefits. Filled with phytonutrients, they contain powerful anti-cancer properties, are high in immune-boosting vitamin C and B, fiber, potassium and manganese. Beets are famous for helping to detox the body and purify the blood and liver.
So you see? There is no excuse not to eat beets, especially these wonderful, sweet, pickled beauties.
