Question From: Chicago, Illinois, United States
Q: I recently purchased pickled beets in a jar for the first time. I remember hearing you have to heat up jarred beets to kill bacteria before eating. Is this true? If I do have to heat them up, tell me for how long. Thank you.
There is no need to boil pickled beets. The vinegar brine will kill any bacteria. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
