Pickled Golden Beets

Pickled Golden Beets - A delicious way to enjoy this healthy vegetable. Great on our fish tacos or on salad!

Yesterday, we shared a fantastic recipe for fish tacos, and these delicious Pickled Golden Beets were one of the condiments that we included as part of that recipe!  Our pickled golden beets are slightly spicy thanks to all-spice berries with a touch of tarragon flavor as well, and they add a bright fresh flavor that is the perfect complement to the fried fish in our taco recipe!

Beets are – in our opinion – a totally under-appreciated vegetable – at least here in the United States!  Beets are far more popular in other countries but in recent years, more and more restaurants are starting to serve dishes including beets – and this nutrient-rich vegetable is gaining in popularity.  I actually loved beets as a kid (go figure!) and to this day, I still love adding beets to fresh salads whenever I can!

Jack and I particularly love golden beets like the ones used in this pickled golden beets recipe.  They have a slightly milder and sweeter flavor than the more common red beets – and are gorgeous to look at too!

So – before you turn your nose up at this recipe – please give it a try!  (And definitely try it on our fish tacos!)  They take just minutes to prepare, and you might be pleasantly surprised at how wonderful pickled golden beets taste!

  1. Can these be water bath processed and keep for months??

    • Hi Darlene – We haven’t canned the beets ourselves to be able to say for sure. Here is a link to the Ball website that includes lots of information about canning foods and hopefully that can direct you to the best and safest method for long term storage options for vegetables like beets. http://www.freshpreserving.com/home.aspx Hope that helps!

  2. Hello! Are the beets in this recipe pre cooked? Or are they peeled from fresh?

  3. I made these today and both myself and my husband love it thank u so much

  4. When it says 7-10 days, is that how long I should let them sit for before I eat them, or is that the shelf life? How long should I let them sit for before I eat them? Thanks

    • Hi Ashley – Just saw this other question – a safe shelf life is 7-10 days in the fridge unless you decide to can them. Hope that helps! (And you can eat them right away.)
