I'm Beet(s).

Long ago I used to make pickles prodigiously.   Now, not so much.  However, this week I had lots of wonderful organic beets to consume so I decided to pickle some.
I forgot how long it takes to make pickles.
I did them all by myself whilst Mr LC dozed in his cozy chair.
If anyone doesn't believe I did these up myself, I now have a pink kitchen to prove it.

I have never canned anything in my whole life. I do love pickles very much and always have them on hand. I love beets too. I'm impressed and yes I believe you:)

Sounds like retirement is working out for him. While I'm not the biggest beet fan, I do like them pickled. Pickling is the one thing from my past that I don't care to continue. Although my mother used to make some killer dilled green beans.

You jars are very swanky.

What do you put those beets on now? Sandwiches?

I don't really pickle.

I've only made jam. Once. Canning is a LOT of work! I believe you.

Hi Deb..
Your husband sounds like mine.. smile.
Your beets look awesome and I believe you, too.
Aren't they a mess to clean up. I cook them in the oven but I am so messy it does not make much difference...
Take care...

I imagine you also have pink fingers. I always do when I make beets.

I love beetroot red. Just divine. Maybe not all over the kitchen however.

I pray these don't end up as another entry for broken item(s) of the week.

save a bottle for hubby's stocking at Christmas! He loves beets!

Well, I am impressed, too! The jars even look wonderful!

Beautiful jars! These look as if they could be found in an expensive gourmet shoppe. Did you know Australian's commonly put beetroot in their salad sandwiches and burgers. Yes! A burger with the lot has beetroot slices.

Wish I knew someone who cans! Maybe I'll try making them and storing them in the fridge.
