Rodbetor (Swedish Pickled Beets)
20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)
7 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is a very simple and basic recipe for pickled beets. I prefer mine spiced up a bit (I throw in 1/2 a cinnamon stick and 4 whole cloves), but this was nice for a change. Not a canning recipe, so easy to throw together for a BBQ! Time does not include 2 hours resting/chilling time - which is truly all that is required for the flavors to come through! NOTE: I made this last evening with one 15oz can of sliced beets, cut them into strips, then halved the amount of vinegar mixture - it came together super quick and was delicious. Recipe from
