Pickled Beets

Pickled beets... it is one of those foods that you love or hate. I thought I was a hater but to be honest I can't recall when I last ate a beet. I was very surprised to find that I really like them. Thanks to my friend, Jessie, we received a few beets in her CSA that she let us have when she was out of town. And the rest is history.

So, I gave the following recipe a go. I love the spice and zip of the vinegar. Plus they are a super food! They are packed full of vitamins and minerals. They contain vitamins A, B, and C. And also contain potassium, magnesium, folic acid, and iron. Delicious and healthy!
