This recipe for pickled canned beetroot with allspice and cinnamon is an old recipe that tastes so much better than anything you can buy at the store. I grow beetroot through the warmer months just so that I can pickle and enjoy the beets throughout the year.
This is a great way to preserve excess beetroot from the garden saving money and reducing food waste.
This recipe makes 7 x 1 Pint (500ml) jars. Continue reading for tips on sterilizing jars.

How to Sterilise Jars and Lids
Place jars on a rack in a tall saucepan then fill each jar with hot water so they don’t float. Continue filling the saucepan with water until the level is above the jars. Place the lids in the water then bring to a boil.
Continue to boil for 10 minutes then remove from the heat and carefully take out of the water with clean tongs emptying the water out of the jars. Place jars and lids on a baking tray then place in a preheated oven at least 100°C (215°F) until ready to fill.
If you are short like me it is easier to put the tall saucepan in the sink to be able to remove the jars. I use tongs with rubber ends and have a tea towel ready to grab the jar as soon as it’s out of the water.
If you don’t have plastic gloves don’t worry. The stain will come off within 24 hours after your hands have been washed a few times.
