Pickled Beets Recipe

Pickled Beets Recipe

For years I’ve wondered how it’s possible that my sweet vegetarian husband, doesn’t care for beets.

I support the way he (or anyone for that matter), chooses to eat, but this I just don’t get.   I mean, what’s not to love about a beet?  They’re a hearty, warming, deliciously sweet, beautiful root vegetable.

Please don’t judge me, but there have been occasions I’ve tried to lure my husband into having a bite of a braised short rib, or a taste of my Braised Brisket Stew.  I can’t help it — I want him to join me in the deliciousness!


  • 2 cups roasted, peeled beets, sliced about 1/4-inch thick into rounds (Here's how to roast beets.)
  • 1/2 cup shallots, sliced thinly
  • 3/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
