My mother use to can beets

My mother use to can beets with just water and vinegar. I can't remember the combination of each. Can you help? I don't care for all the spices.msadler2004@yahoo.com

My very old recipe calls for

My very old recipe calls for using the liquid that the beets were first cooked in instead of plain water. I do this ahead of time to let any sediment settle to the bottom. I use equal parts sugar, beet liquor and vinegar. No spices at all. This is a much requested pickled beet recipe and addition to meals. P.S. be sure to leave about 1" of the tops and roots on the beets when prepping them to cook.This way they will keep their color. Remove the tops and roots before adding them to the brine.
