Grandma Lainey's Pickled Beets

  • 2 1/2 cups sliced canned beets, juice reserved
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar 
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 whole cloves ( i would decrease this to one clove - sh)
  • 3 black peppercorns
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 small onion, sliced

Place the beets into a medium bowl and set aside.
In a medium saucepan, combine vinegar and 1/2 cup beet juice and bring to a boil. 
Add sugar, cloves, peppercorns, bay leaf, salt and onion, and return to a boil. Remove from heat, and pour mixture over the beets. 
Toss until coated, cover and chill. 
Serve the beets very cold.
