Superthin slices of red and yellow beets retain their crunch in this zesty liquid. Toss in a salad, eat from the jar, or serve as a bright side.

The raw beets remained raw and it felt like I was biting into a piece of rubber. The brine was good, but the beets failed

I adore this recipe! It's easy and fast. I never liked beets until I tried this and now I'm a huge fan. My 6yo son requests these in his lunches and even as a part of the spread for his birthday party each year! They're not very spicy but the chili really needs to be there. I tried it without and it just wasn't as good. The beets never last a whole month so we end up throwing bits of onion or carrot into the brine once the beets are gone too.
