    Well to be honest I don't like beets but I used this recipe to pickle beets (red and golden) from our local farmer's market and it got rave reviews! My husband, his parents and sister all LOVED this recipe. They said it was WAY better than any jarred pickled beets they've had. This is a keeper!

    You must try this if you have ever purchased pickled beets in a jar. What an easy recipe. You will need to adapt cooking time due to size of your beets. Next time I will quarter the beets. Definitely will keep this recipe!

    Easy and so much better when you make them yourself. I prefer to use a flavored vinegar though, like red wine or tarragon. I used them in a spinach, beet, feta and walnut salad. Yum!

    I don't like pickled beets, but my husband loves these. The recipe is incredibly easy and you can eat the beets as soon as their chilled, no waiting days for them to "pickle".

    Very nice flavor and not as strong as recipe I've used in the past with cloves, cinnamon sticks and allspice. Very versatile and can easily use in a beet salad. Very easy, I just wish I would have grown more beets for this recipe. Would make great gifts.

    These are so pretty in the jars you dont want to eat them!!! but do, because they are also delicious. And easy. Make sure to remove the bay leaves soon after chilling.

    I made these this morning and they are great and it is so easy. I do not plan to can them; we will eat them in the next few days. Should I store them in the brine or not? Any ideas on that?

    Awesome pickled beets recipe! So easy & fast! I used a mix of golden, red, and candy cane beets, but these were larger than 7 per lb, so I quartered them before boiling, I have to say that I think that was un-necessary though, and wouldn't bother to do it in the future. This recipe makes me want to plant beets in my garden so that I can have an excuse to make this all the time! I would not hesitate to make these again!

    Very easy. I used cider vinegar since I like that flavor and it tastes great.

    Very good! I would have never guessed it was that easy. Great tossed in salads, or on their own.

    I roasted the beets in foil instead of boiling. I thought the recipe was very tasty and lasts in the frig for a long time! Pretty with doing both purple and yellow beets!
