Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine all ingredients, except beets, in a small saucepan, and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add beets and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer very gently until beets are tender, 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Transfer to a small heatproof container; keep beets submerged.


Cook's Notes

Choose the smallest baby beets you can find -- they should be about the size of very large olives. Or, use a paring knife to whittle larger ones to the desired size.
