International Pickle Day: Pickled Baked Beets

Foodfreak invites us to present our pickled goods for the International Pickle Day VII of the New York Food Museum, which is celebrated on Sunday, September 16, 2007.

I decided to use the last beets in my garden for pickled beets:

pickled beets - eingelegte Rote Bete

In the original recipe the first step ist to cook the beets in boiling water until tender. I used a method I once learned in a cookery course and baked the beets wrapped in aluminium foil in the oven, which  helps to enhance their sweet flavour. Don’t forget to test them: a fork should pierce the beets easily.

Directions

Wash beets well, cut off leaves. Wrap each one in oiled aluminium foil and bake in an oven preheated to 200°C for about 45-60 minutes until tender. Peel under running water, trim and slice.

Arrange beets, onions and ginger in layers in preserving jars.

Combine water, vinegar, salt and sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and pour the hot pickle juice over the vegetables. Seal jars and let stand for at least 2 days.

These pickled beets will keep for at least 3 months in the refrigerator.
