- 2 bunches fresh beets (save fresh greens for a stir-fry or soup)
- 2 cups apple cider vinegar
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp. mustard seeds
Steam beets until they are crisp-tender and remove from heat. Slip off skins when cool enough to touch. Cut into 1-inch chunks.
Mix beets with the remaining ingredients and let stand overnight to cure.
