How To Pressure Can Beets / Canning Beetroot


Pressure Can Beetroot / Canning Beets / Preserving in a Presto Canner


On my homestead, beetroot is harvested as we need it, throughout the Winter and Spring. Towards the end of Spring, I start canning some for Summer salads, BBQs and Burgers with the lot.


Pressure Canning Beets

Sterilize canning jars

Harvest Beets under 3 inches in size and wash (Larger beets are usually too fibrous)

Trim leaves and tap root off, boil beets in water until skins easily slip off

Slice, dice or leave small beets whole

Check jars for cracks or rim damage

Fill Pint or Quart jars with hot beets, leaving 1 inch headspace

Add 1/2 teaspoon salt per pint jar (Optional)

Cover with boiling water

Check 1 inch headspace, wipe rims of jars with hot water or white vinegar, then clean dry cloth

lids and rings on finger tight

Process Pint jars 30 minutes / Quart Jars 35 Minutes


If using Weighted Gauge

Altitude 0 - 1000 ft is 10 lb weight

Altitude above 1000 ft 15 lb weight


If using Dial Gauge

Altitude 0 - 2000 ft is 11 lb

Altitude 2001 - 4000 ft is 12 lb

Altitude 4001 - 6000 ft is 13 lb
