I make 9 pints at a time in the canner, so I can't guesstimate how many beets I use - I just fill my soup pot with about 1/2 bucket of beets. I've used this recipe since the 90's, so I know it's good. (And easy to remember). I grow Cylindra beets for pickling.

4 cups cider vinegar
4 cups water
4 cups sugar
1 tsp. Ground allspice
1 tsp. Ground cloves
1 tablespoon Cinnamon

Boil the beets, slip the skins, slice the beets. Fill the pint jars with beets.
Boil the ingredients. Recess for 10 minutes, depending on altitude.
