Mom's Beet Pickling Solution

This I found in my mom's recipe box. I've tweaked it somewhat in my own canning, but this is where I started in my Sweet and Sour Pickled Beets recipe.

2 c. vinegar

2 c. brown sugar

1 tsp. salt

2 T. pickling spice

Boil beets until tender. Slip off skin and pack in jars. Small beets can be pickled whole, slice or chunk larger ones. Boil solution; pour into jars over beets and seal in hot water bath.
