 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       cn           Small beets (10 oz cans)
      1/2   c            White vinegar
      3/4   c            White sugar
                         Pinch of salt
                         Pinch of pepper
 
   In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar to boil and add
   the sugar slowly until dissolved - stir constantly.
   Open the cans of beets and retain the juice from one
   can. Add the beets (whole) to the boiling
   vinegar/sugar solution and bring back to a boil.
   Add the retained beet juice (about 1/4 cup worth).
   Add salt & pepper.  Boil for about 2 minutes and then
   remove from heat. Sterilize two sealing jars (about 10
   ~ 12 oz capacity). Put beets into sterlized jars,
   cover with the vinegar/sugar solution and seal with
   lids. Let stand several days before serving.
   This is a sweet pickle best served cold.  Excellent
   with beef and pork.
