  1. Frankly speaking, pickling beets isn't that easy. First, you need to remove the greens from beet roots. Do not get rid of them! You can use them for cooking interesting and unusual dishes later.

Leave the vegetables to simmer for 30-40 minutes. The cooking time depends on the size of the beets! You can check whether they are ready using a fork. When they are soft, remove the pan from the heat. Drain them and wash with cold water, get rid of the skin.
  3. Now it’s time to get down to the main process. Mix cider vinegar with olive oil, sugar and dry mustard. Mix all the ingredients carefully. Add salt and pepper to the liquid.
