Ingredients

  • 1 small red beet, peeled and coarsely grated
  • 1 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon juniper berries
  • 1 dried bay leaf

  • Hot sauce, celery leaves, and flaky sea salt, for serving

Directions

  1. Bring beet, 1 cup water, vinegar, sugar, coarse salt, juniper berries, and bay leaf to a boil in a small pot, stirring until sugar and salt are dissolved. Let cool completely. Pass through a fine sieve; discard solids.
