Canning Inspiration: Beets (Beetroot)

Grown lots of beets, purchased them at a great price or want to try a new canning dish this season? Here is a list of flavours and ideas to inspire your next canning creation!
Please note: all of these dishes must be processed in a canner before storage - some are for boiling water canning (ie chutney, pickles and relish), whilst others MUST be pressure canned (ie beets in water). Ensure you use one of our recipes (or a recipe from a reliable source such as NCHFP).
You can check out our recipe page HERE.
Happy canning!
