Pickled Beets

Delicious pickled beets.

5 medium size beets
2 cup white vinegar
3 tablespoon sugar
A pinch salt

Roast or bake beets in the oven at 450 degree F for about 40 minutes.
The skin of the beets will come off easily.
Let the beets cool down.
Slice the beets at about ¼ inch thick.
In a separate bowl, mix sugar, salt and vinegar until sugar dissolve.
Using a jar or plastic container, put the beets in.
Lastly, pour the vinegar onto the beets.
Keep in the fridge overnight before serving.


  1. Hi Zuraida,

    This is interesting. I have never heard of “pickled beets”.
    Could we use it in the sandwich like “pickled gherkins?”

  2. Apakhabar Zuraida...

    Cantik warna merah pada Beets.. Pasti sedap .. tanam sendiri lagi :)

  3. Cilantro, yes, this is similar to pickled gherkins and you can add it in your sandwich or in your salad. Homemade pickle taste better.

  4. Hani, I khabar baik. How are you?
    Yes, the color is very deep red and the taste is superb. Next time, I am going to add hard boiled egg into the pickled beets and make pickled eggs.
