Golden Beets

 We ordered a 25 LB sack of Organic Golden Beets from Azure* this month. (We have never done that before.)  A 25 LB sack of beets is large!

 Debbie & Adrienne scrubbed almost all of them (a few are in the fridge for roasting another time), and then gave them a boiling water/cold water dip, to make them easier to peel. This process took longer than we thought it would, but it was not bad. The peeled beets looked like peaches! =)

Beets, boiling water, 1/2-1 teaspoon salt per quart jar and ONE INCH head space!  (we had beets left over, Debbie cooked & pickled them!)

Pressure can them....

 I'm not sure that Golden Beets are supposed to be canned- they lost all their color!  But we are now the proud owners of 6 quarts of beets, that will get turned into pickled beets later in the year.

*Azure is a buying club that delivers to Greenville once a month. They also deliver to Rockwall, and other places in the DFW Metroplex. (click here for info)
