Pickled Beats.

I love them. Someone mentioned Pickle Quail eggs. I like them too, but if you're 70 years old and want to milk out every year of life you can, healthy food is a good thing. Pickled Beats are as healthy as it gets. But if you buy a bottle at the store, they can get expensive. I have a recipe that is cheap and good! And Easy. Just go buy you some cheap canned beats, a some Apple cider vineger and some sugar, plain old cane sugar.

I buy the local brand HEB canned beats, 78 Cents a 16 oz. can. Throw them in a sauce pan, add 1/2 cup sugar, and a half cup apple cider vinegar. Bring to a boil and cut it back to a simmering boil after a few minutes. Leave it simmering for 15-20 minutes and shut the heat off. When it cools down, put the pan in the refrigerator and let it chill down. It is ready to eat then but what I do is put them in pint jars and put the lid on and let em sit overnight. For me they turn out great. They're as good as any canned pickle beats I've ever bought and a lot cheaper.

    I'd sooner live long than not, but if beets in any form are the key....just lock the door behind me.

    You could wear them pickled

    Clean has the Grammys on---I could use those; but, if I was also pickled it would be better.

    I'd rather have pickled okra or green beans. Beets are OK, but I won't go out of my way to buy them or pickle them myself. Cider vinegar, kosher salt, water and a few cloves of fresh garlic make a pretty good universal pickling bath for a lot of veggies. Sliced carrots, cauliflower florets, celery chunks, and pearl onions make a pretty good mix when processed with that pickling brine.

    I love them. With onions. They do taste earthy, and they are good for you. You can use the juice to pickle boiled eggs and get more bang for your buck. I seldom buy them but eat them every time I go to a country restaurant. Also rutabagas. With cornbread, of course.

    Yeah, really. Have you ever eaten pickled beats? They're sweet and good. But they should be cold.

    You got that right Gene. But I can eat em cold right out of the can. Just spear a few with a fork and put em in a bowl and chow down. Things that are dark red are loaded with anti oxidants. Also, now they have blood pressure meds made from beets. And it is generally accepted that they can have a big effect on cancer prevention.

    I also eat Pickled okra and make that too. And if you like Pickled Eggs, pickled beet juice makes great pickled eggs. I make that too. When you cut the pickled egg in half and the yoke is purple it is fantastic to me.

    Yeah yeah. Some people like brussel sprouts too. Pass on both and while we are at it, add any squash not summer.

    I've never been crazy about beets, in any form. But, a few years back, Mrs. Bisley started buying them fresh and baking them in a way that made them edible. I forced myself to eat them, because the effect they had on my digestive system was nothing short of magnificent. After all of that time of eating them like I was taking medicine, I finally got to liking them pretty well. I still don't care much for the pickled ones, though.

    Come on, admit it... you just like the purple toilet water.

    I love beets. If you get some fresh ones and eat enough, it will turn your urine a neat pink color. The first time that happened to me, it freaked me out a bit because I forgot I had eaten some earlier that day and thought it was blood.

    We don't eat beEts much, just because they're not on the top of our minds at the store, and we don't see a lot of recipes for them. Mostly we'll have them in a salad, but Wife's mother makes a great borscht!

    I hate beets pickled or otherwise. I've grown sugar beets in the edge of the back hayfield a few times, though. Plow them up when muzzleloader deer season opens. Sugar beets are deer candy.

    Actually, I just finished a large portion of fresh beet greens, sauteed in olive oil with garlic and onions, and then steamed lightly. They were great. I like the beets pretty well, too, now that I'm used to them. As far as the toilet sessions go, just let me say that I feel like I was sixteen, again. And yeah, the purple water freaked me out the first time, too.

    There are very few vegetables that I won't eat and beets are one of them. They taste like crunchy dirt clods to me.
