Pickled Beets

28. September 2022

Fall is the time for root vegetables, and we usually have an abundance of many different ones like potatoes, carrots, parsnips, beets, celery root etc. It can be hard to store them, and have them last for a long time, without prepping them!

The Healthy made Simple Lifestyle is all about eating organic, locally grown and in season crops. That is what our body is designed to do. Read more about the

I love beets; They add an amazing color to a dish as well as a high nutritional value.
During fall and winter, we have beets several times a week, either oven roasted with other root vegetables, raw in a salad or pickled. These easy pickled beets adds a sweet and sour flavor to any fall salad.
You can also make a super tasty beet hummus, and use the beet top in smoothies, juices and starry

Why eat beets

The nutritional value in Beets are many; they are a really high in Nitric Oxide which supports your cardiovascular health, blood pressure, circulation, and energy level.
They also contain a high amount of polyphenols and betalains, which are natural antioxidants. You also get a some really good fibers, which supports your digestive system.

Many people say they think Beets are too earthy in taste, which might true if you eat them raw. However, when cocked, I think they add a sweetness to the dish. In juices, I like to add apple, carrot and ginger to give it a more spicy flavor. I always peal the Beets though, when used for cooking. When I use then for juicing, I just scrub them.

One thing when adding Beets to your diet! Your urine and sometimes poop, mighe turn red’ish or pink because of the betanin. It is not dangerous in any way, it’s just because you can’t break down this compound.  

for easy pickled beets you need:

2 fist size beets
1 1/2 cup of water
1 cup of apple cider vinegar
4 tbsp of Sukrin (Blood sugar neutral sugar)
1 tbsp of Pepper corn
A pinch of salt 

Peel the beets and cut them in small cubes.
Mix the rest in a sauce pan and get it to boil. Add the beets and cock for 20-30 minutes,
or until they have the consistency you like.
Add the beets to glass jar, and cover them with the beet water!
Store in the fridge up till 7 days.
