Pickled Beets

  • 6 medium-size beets
  • 1 1/2 cups wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons dill seeds
Cover whole beets with water and boil until tender. Drain, reserving 1 1/4 cups of liquid.
When beets are cool, slice off tops and bottoms. Then, using your fingers, slip off skins. Slice beets. Bring vinegar and reserved cooking liquid to a boil. Add mustard, salt and sugar. Stir and bring to boil again. Remove and set aside. Arrange beet slices and onions in layers in clean, screw-top jars. Add dill seeds. Cover with hot vinegar mixture. Tightly screw on tops.
