Pickled Beets
Freshly grown beets from our local farmers market.

Traditional Newfoundland Pickled Beets have been made by many Newfoundlanders all over the world. This recipe for pickled beets is so good you will not make it any other way, I have this friend on the west coast of Newfoundland that waits until I make my beets in the fall so he can have a fix of old fashion homemade beets.

I know beets are in many many recipes, juices, salads and soups but the only way I remember beets is pickled and with your Traditional Newfoundland Jiggs Dinner on Sunday.
