I love watching "good eats" with Alton Brown and I love beets , so I tried his pickled (refrigerator) beets today - I won't know if they're any good for awhile and I did kinda goof up a little - didn't pack them too well (that tends to be a problem I have with canning) so I had to make more liquid. Anyhoo, I took a photo (I also posted this on EasyGarden if you happen to frequent that forum).
Yep and they look like pickled onions with beet juice, but I swear there are beets in there!
I'm ga-ga over cool canning jars, and found these made in Italy - didn't want to use them for hot water bath, but for refrigerator stuff I think they'll work just fine.
Will let you know if a week or so if they turned out okay. And don't look too closely at the photo - you'll see beet juice everywhere!
