I'm really fond of beets, we call it beetroot from where I come from, but I don't agree with calling it beets... Seems like a friendlier name to them. 

* Ingredients :

° 10 lb (4.5 kg) beetroot bag
° 625 ml (2 12 cups) vinegar
° 180 ml of water
° 375 ml (1 12 cups) brown sugar

* Directions : 

Brush the beets, reserving the peel and a piece of the stem. Separate the large beets from the small.
Put the large beets in a large saucepan and the small beets in another saucepan. Fill both pans with water and bring to a boil. Simmer, over low heat, until softened, 1 hour 30 minutes for large beets and 1 hour for small beets. Remove from heat. Strain and leave to cool.
Beets also can be cooked in a press cooker (presto) in a small water (2 cm - 3/4 inch). It taking 21 min for large beets also 15 min for little beets.
Wear gloves to peel the beets and cut them into slices or cubes.

For the marinade, bring vinegar, water, and brown sugar to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes.
