30 Minute Picked Beets: Step by Step Tutorial


Step 1: Cut off the stalks and greens.

Step 2: Immerse the trimmed beets in simmering water for 30 minutes.


Step 3: Test the beets, they should be fork tender. Drain.


 Step 4: To remove the skins, run the beets under cold water. The skins should fall off easily.


This is what the beets should look like after the skin is removed


Step 5: Slice beets to desired thickness. The thinner the slice, the quicker the beet will pickle.

(*This is also the time to add finely sliced onion, if desired)


 Step 6: Make the vinaigrette. Ingredients needed: 1/4 C white wine vinegar, 1 Tbs sugar, 1-1/2 Tbs olive oil, 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard, salt and pepper to taste. (Freshly chopped basil & parsley optional.)


Step 7: Whisk vinaigrette until emulsified.


Step 8: Toss vinaigrette together with sliced beets gently to coat. Chill at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to mingle.
