Pickled Red Beets THM FP

Pickled Beets have been a favorite in my Mennonite /Pennsylvania Dutch Heritage. My grandmother canned these and I’m sure her grandmother did, too. These beets are eaten cold and often the brine is used to pickle hard-boiled eggs.  This post does contain affiliate links with the products I love to use.

Pickled Beets

  • 2 gallons small-medium red beets
  • 6 cups red beet juice*
  • 2 cups White Vinegar
  • 2 cups Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons Mineral salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon THM Stevia
  • 2 cups water

Cut tops off red beets leaving about 1 inch of stems. Leave tail/root attached. Scrub red beets well to remove dirt. Add 2 quarts water to beets and cook until semi soft. Remove beets from liquid and allow to cool. Strain liquid through a cloth to remove all grit. Set red beet liquid/juice aside. Cut stems and tails off of beets and remove the skin. Slice the beets or if they are small leave them whole. Fill canning jars 3/4 full of beets. In a kettle combine reserve beet juice, vinegar, salt, stevia, and water. Heat brine until boiling. Pour brine into jars leaving 1 inch head space. Add rings and lids. Place in a water bath canner. Cover jars completely with water. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Turn off heat. Allow jars to set for 10 minutes. Remove from canner and allow to cool for 12 hours. Check from sealed lids. Store in a cool place.

*Insta-Pot is your best friend when cooking beets. I put 1 quart of water and 1/2 of the beets in my Insta-Pot. Choosing the manual setting I cooked them for 2 minutes. They were perfect. No splattering mess cooking on the stove top.

Pickled beets are a THM-FP with 1/2 cup serving. A larger amount will be an THM-E.

A favorite ways to use these beets is to add 12 hard boiled eggs to one quart of beets and juice. Refrigerate. The eggs get a delicious pickled flavor and I love to set them alone or on a salad.

Scrubbed beets in the Insta-Pot ready to cook. 

Cooked beets waiting to be peeled. When you cut the tops and tails of the rest of the skin just slides off.

Trimmed and peeled beets and brine ready for the canning jars. Jars filled 3/4 full with beets.

                      

Jars in the canner covered with 1 inch of water.  Sealed jars of beets ready for storage.

           

This recipe is not FDA approved but has been used for many years with great success. Pressure Canning is not necessary with this recipe because of the amount of vinegar in it.

Root-beer Float Finger Jello – THM FP or S

If you love the taste of Root-beer Floats you’ll love this finger jello. Best of all it is sugar-free, gluten free, and can be dairy-free as a THM FP. There is also an option for THM S with cream. Rootbeer Float Finger Jello

Root beer part:

White Part:

  • 1 cup cream for THM S OR 1 cup almond milk for THM FP
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoon THM Gentle Sweet

Root beer part: Soften gelatin in 1 cup water for 5 minutes.  Bring remaining water to a boil, remove from heat and whisk in soften gelatin. Stir until it is all dissolved. Add extract and sweetener. Pour into a 9-inch square pan. Chill until set. White part: Soften gelatin in 1/2 cup cream (THM S) OR almond milk (THM FP) for 5 minutes. Heat remaining almond milk (THM FP) OR cream (THM S)until almost a boil. Whisk in gelatin until dissolved. Add vanilla and Gentle Sweet. Pour over root beer mixture and chill. Cut into 20 pieces.

*some extracts are stronger, you may want to add less and taste before adding the entire amount.

Using all cream will be a THM S. Using all almond milk will be a THM FP. I will sometimes use 1/2 cup cream and 1/2 cup almond milk to still have a creamy taste but with a reduced calorie load. You can still eat 3 pieces and be under 5 grams of fat.

Chipotle Sandwich Sauce – THM FP

My family loves sandwiches on hot, humid, summer days. Most bread options are an E and I wanted a tasty sauce that is low in fat so it can be add to a sandwich without having a crossover. A family favorite is Sourdough Flat-breads filled with various kinds of meat. Pictured below is grilled chicken tenders on Sourdough Flatbread with Chipotle Sandwich Sauce and extra Chipotle hot sauce simply because I like the added heat. This sandwich is an E because of the Sourdough Flatbread and sauce can be used in an S or FP setting.

Triple Berry Jam THM–FP

Summer is coming and with it comes delicious berries of all kinds. Triple Berry Jam has become my favorite. I will eat it over ice cream, yogurt, cottage cheese , and I must admit even right from the jar for dessert. Triple Berry Jam

  • 1 ½ cup Black Raspberry juice*, divided
  • 3 cups blended Red raspberries
  • 4 cups blended strawberries**
  • 1 cup xylitol
  • 1 ¼ cup THM Gentle Sweet
  • 3 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1/3 cup strawberry xylitol jell-o

Combine 1 cup black raspberry juice, red raspberries and strawberries in medium-size kettle. Soften unflavored gelatin in remaining ½ cup raspberry juice. Bring fruit mixture to a boil. Whisk in xylitol and Gentle Sweet. Add softened gelatin and strawberry jell-o. Whisk until well combined. Bring to a boil. Ladle into jars, add lids and rings. Cool. 4-5 pints jam.

I  store the jam in my extra refrigerator for up to a year. This jam will need to be refrigerated to set up properly with gelatin. You may adjust the gelatin for a thicker or thinner jam. I prefer my jam thick and my recipe will reflect that.

*I will steam my black raspberries with a Juice Steamer lined with cheesecloth. I then freeze or can the juice in the amount needed for this jam recipe.

**For Strawberry Jam use 8 1/2 cups blended strawberries instead of the 3 kinds of berries listed.

Strawberry Xylitol Jello can be purchased from this company or many bulk food stores  carry it. If you do not want to use xylitol jello, you can replace the jello with an additional 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin and 3 tablespoon Xylitol free Gentle Sweet.
