These beets add tang and luscious colour to burgers and salads. They also taste great when served on their own or as part of a charcuterie board.

  • Prep time 10 minutes
  • Total time 25 hours



In saucepan, cover beets with cold water; bring to boil over medium-high heat. Cook until tender, about 30 minutes. Drain.

Transfer beets to bowl of ice water to chill; let cool enough to handle. Peel beets; using mandoline, thinly slice. Place beets and thyme in wide-mouth 3-cup canning jar.

In small saucepan, bring vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, peppercorns, salt and 2/3 cup water to boil; cook, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes. Immediately pour into jar. Let cool completely; cover and refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving.

Makes about 2 cups.
