Ingredients

6 fresh medium beets (about 3 lb.)
1⁄2 sweet onion, cut into 1⁄4-inch-thick slices (about 11⁄4 cups)
3 (1⁄8-inch-thick) fresh ginger slices
1 tsp. black peppercorns
3⁄4 tsp. whole allspice
2 cups cider vinegar (5% acidity)
¾ cup sugar
2 tsp. kosher salt

Instructions

1. Trim beet stems to 1 inch; gently wash. Place in a medium saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 25 to 30 minutes or until tender. Drain, rinse, and cool slightly (about 15 minutes).

2. Peel beets, halve lengthwise, and cut crosswise into 1⁄4-inch-thick slices.

3. Divide beets and onion slices among clean canning jars or other heatproof, nonreactive containers with lids. Divide ginger and next 2 ingredients among jars.

4. Combine vinegar, remaining ingredients, and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar and salt. Pour hot vinegar mixture into jars, covering beet mixture completely and filling to 1⁄2 inch from top. Let cool 10 minutes; cover and chill 24 hours before serving. Store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
