Instant Pot Canned Beets

I’m canning beets today from our garden. I cleaned them really well, leaving a portion of the tops. Then I put them in the Instant Pot with 1 cup of water (put trivet in too) 12 minutes on high pressure.

Do a Quick Release – releasing the pressure manually. Put the beets into a colander and run under cold water. They were so easy to peel, I was able to do it with one hand while filming with the other.

Then proceed like you normally do with your canning recipe.
This is how I do mine. I peel and quarter them and place in sterilized jars. I add boiling water leaving 1″ head space. Add, 1/2 tsp salt to each pint jar. Put on lids and rings. Beets need to be processed in a pressure canner (not the Instant Pot) for 30 minutes using #15 lbs pressure (this is for 1,000 feet above sea level.)
The pressure canner looks like this:

This was the easiest way to prepare beets that I’ve ever done and I’ve been doing this for over 48 years.

I made a video, but I called it a “pressure canner” instead of Instant Pot! DUH ??It’s one reason I don’t do videos, I’m not very good at it! lol
It was the last beet to do that’s why I didn’t retake it, but I will share it with you anyway! You have to give me credit for shooting a video with one hand and peeling the beet in the other.

So easy to peel
