I had no idea it took so long to make pickled beets

I started processing beets early this afternoon. It took about four hours all totaled. Granted some of it was processing time, but it really is a long project. I ended up with five litre jars of pickled beets. My fingers are only a bit beet colored. Mostly my cuticles.
It rained most of today. It was kind of nice actually. We have had a very cool summer, but not really with any rain to speak of.

***My sister Jess told me that they have smaller jars of pickled beets at Silver Rill Farm for $7.00 per jar. Mine worked out to about a dollar per jar, or less. So I guess it is worth the work!!
