Sweet and Sour Beets with Basil


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3 red beets, peeled and cut into batons (or or matchstick pieces 1/4 inch thick)
  • 8 basil leaves, chiffonade


In a deep pot, combine the sugar, vinegar and water. Add the beets to the pot and bring to a simmer. Allow to simmer, uncovered, for approximately 45 minutes or until beets are tender and only a small amount of syrupy liquid remains. Let cool.

When beets and syrup are cool, add the basil chiffonade.
