Ultra Easy Pickled Beets

This is so easy it is embarrassing.  I oven roasted some beets, cooled them and peeled them.  I had pickled sweet ginger for sushi in the refrigerator.  I made a simple mixture of rice vinegar with a tablespoon of sugar and heated it until the sugar dissolved.  I placed the sliced, roasted beets in a container with a lid, added some whole and chopped pickled sweet ginger and then added the sweetened rice vinegar to cover.  After a couple of days in the marinade, the beets were ready.  They are delicious!  And the red coloured ginger could be used as a garnish on your sushi plate or in a salad.

I am also honoured to be recognized by one of my favourite blogs lostpastremembered.  You have to visit her especially if you have an historical interest in food.  I am learning so much.  Thank you!

And in the custom of receiving accolades, I am passing this on to some of my other favourites:

They have such wonderful recipes, cooking and presentation ideas.  Please check them out.
