I would been that means to can for some time. My hesitation wasn’t that I used to be intimidated by the method as a lot as making an attempt to handle it together with filming a video and taking pictures. Even the only recipe turns into complicated when you add on the “meals running a blog” issue.

When my pals at Entire Meals Market requested for a recipe, this was the right time to begin! I modified a recipe I obtained from my buddy Michael and the e-book he lent me, the Preservation Kitchen. Humorous factor, I met Michael over Instagram due to, nicely, meals pictures. Go determine.

1. Canning has a number of transferring components. However one thing that may actually take the strain off is the order wherein you do issues. It saves a number of time. To start out, let’s get your pot, fitted with a canning rack, stuffed with water. Then deliver it to a low simmer.

2. Whereas the water heating up, we’re gonna get our beet on. Roast the three kilos of golden beets (with some olive oil and sea salt) lined, bake at 400 levels for an hour till tender. Take away them from the oven and as soon as they’re cool, rub off the skins. Then minimize the beets into 1/4-inch wedges and weigh out 2 1/2 kilos to pickle; eat the remainder. #nomnom

3. Because the beets are roasting, put together the brine. In a small sauce pot add the next: 2 cups crimson wine vinegar (5% acidity), 1 cup crimson wine, 1/2 cup water, 1/3 cup honey (sorry vegans!), 1/3 cup packed brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon sea salt. Carry it to a boil after which hold it heat.

Depart the jars there till you’re able to fill them however do not let the water get above a really low simmer. Holding the jars heat prevents them from breaking if you fill them with sizzling fluids. Why does that sound soiled?

7. Now pack the jars with the beets and fill with brine, leaving 1/2 inch of house from the rim. As you’ll discover within the remaining pictures, I didn’t get this completely proper. If there’s an excessive amount of air house between the meals and the lid, a discoloration within the prime of the product might end result. #doasIsay

8. Seal the jars with a warmed lid. When screwing on the canning ring, you need it to be comfortable however not over tightened. Do not go all Hulk on it.

9. Now let’s course of the jars. Add them again to the pot, inserting them on the canning rack. Add sufficient water so the jars are lined by not less than 1/2 of water. Carry it to a boil after which begin the timer. Allow them to course of for 10 minutes. After the ten minutes, flip off the warmth and allow them to cool for a couple of minutes within the tub earlier than eradicating.

10. Take away them utilizing a jar lifter, being cautious to not tip the jars, and to then simply set them out on a counter to completely cool. You already know they’re sealed when the highest pops and you may now not press down the indentation. However you’ll be able to take away the jar ring and verify the seal your self, you need to have the ability to maintain the jar by the lid.

NOTE: For longer storage, retailer them with out the rings… this prevents rust.
