I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Chili Pickled Beets

Ok, this is the last beet recipe I'm going to make this fall. Cook beets in salted boiling water until tender.  Do not peel.  Medium beets will take about 50-60 minutes.  Drain and drop into cold water for a few minutes.  Remove peel easily.

10-12 medium beets, cooked
6 chili peppers
1  1/2 cups white vinegar
1 cup brown sugar
10 whole cloves
pinch salt
pinch pepper

Place cooked sliced beets and 1 chili pepper in each sterilized jar.

Combine 2 chili peppers, vinegar, brown sugar, cloves, salt and pepper in a saucepan and bring to a boil. 

Pour vinegar over beets and apply lids.  Process in hot water bath 10-15 minutes. 

I made 3 pint jars and had to mix up another half recipe of vinegar for a quart jar.
