Sweet and sour pickled beets to tantalize the tastebuds

Pickled Beets with Vinegar and Spices

Chef Adriana Martin
Pickling is such an ancient food preservation technique using vinegar and spices so we decided to make spirals of pickled beets to use as a garnish. This is a simple recipe that has beets cut in spirals, vinegar, and spices. Then pickled inside the fridge overnight inside a mason jar.
