In This Recipe


  1. In an appropriate pot bring water, 1 cup of vinegar and salt to boil.
  2. Chop the beets and toss them in the boiling vinegar-water. Check the doneness of beets occasionally with a knife. When it softens, turn off the heat, add chopped garlic (if you would like to consume it right after, you can squeeze the garlic, but I don't recommend it if you are planning to keep afterwards) and let it cool.
