Beet Relish


  • 1 bunch of beets (about 1 and 1/4 lbs)
  • 1 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup wine vinegar
  • 2 tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbs pickling spices
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
This is a delicious relish that maximizes the savory sweet flavor of beets. It is especially good on chicken or fish.
  • Wash beets and cut off leaves 1 inch from beets.
  • Place in a sauce pan with 1 tbs of cider vinegar and water to cover.
  • Cook until tender (10 or 20 minutes depending on size of beets.)
  • Drain reserving 1/4 cup of cooking juices.
  • Peel and dice (you may want to use protective gloves to keep your hands for discoloring)
  • Combine balance of ingredients, except onion in a heavy bottomed sauce pan.
  • Bring to a simmering point. Partially cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Strain into a bowl with beets. Add onion, stirring to blend then cool.
  • Transfer to a jar. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Drain and serve chilled.
