I'm thinking local beets should be coming into season soon. And, I just bought a new water canning pot and jars.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

You don't have to do a Hot Water Bath Lorraine. Just put the beets in the jar, pour hot liquid over, cover a counter with a thick town, put the lids on tight, sit upright and listen for the "tink" as they seal. If they don't seal, eat 'em!

I'm not against the water bath, just saying it isn't something you HAVE to do for them to seal.

I shared my crop of beets last year with one of the older ladies I work with and she shared a quart her pickled beets with me. They were delicious and I planned on getting her recipe, but I have this one copied into my file now. The horseradish in there sounds yummy!

And I cast my vote on running them through a water bath for 20 minutes just to reinforce that seal. I have had much better luck doing things that way.

And Lorraine, just found a perfectly unused canning kettle and basket for $4 at a yard sale. I just accumulate these things, one can't have too many when you are up to your ears in bushels of tomatoes!

What a great deal! I searched all the stores here and couldn't find any. Finally had to buy one at Amazon.
