I have made substitutions to make the recipe more consistent with what I would do.
- 6 red beets
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1 cup of water
- Remove surface dirt from the beets and steam for 15 minutes.
- When cool, peel beets and top and tail them. Cut up into bit-sized pieces, and place in a glass container.
- In a measuring cup add molasses, salt, cider vinegar, and water.
- Whisk liquid to dissolve molasses and salt, and pour over the prepared beets.
