Beet Pickles ‘Do Not Use’

Another from the “Standard Figuring Book”. We can’t ask Grandma Falba why she labeled this recipe as ‘do not use’. The other note on it, other than a large ‘X’ to cross it out, is ‘Mamas’. The recipe is included here, but can’t be recommended. What Grandma Falba says…goes!

Beet Pickles (Mamas)
Slice into bottles. To 2 qts of beets, add 1 C good vinegar, 1/2 C sugar, 2 C water. Let this mixture come to a boil & pour over beets.

Pickled beets were one of Grandma’s favorites to can, and to share with all of us. This just wasn’t the recipe she preferred!
