Pickled Beets

  • 12 to 16 small beets
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon whole pickling spices

Wash beets well; cut off leaves about an inch above beets. Cook in boiling water for about 30 to 40 minutes, or until tender. Cool; rub off skins, trim, and slice. Combine sugar and vinegar in a medium saucepan.
