Prep Time 5 days
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 5 days 10 minutes
Course Preserves
Cuisine Indian
Servings 2 Quarts


  • 1 Medium Saucepan
  • 2 Quart Sized Mason Jars or 4 pint sized jars


  • 2 Turnip Medium
  • 1 Beet Halved & Diced
  • 2 Garlic Cloves Roughly Chopped
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 Tbsp Whole Peppercorns
  • 3 Cup Water
  • 1/3 Cup Pickling Salt
  • 1 Cup Pickling Vinegar


  • In a medium saucepan, add the water, vinegar, bay leaves, salt, and bring to a light boil. Stir until all salt is dissolved. Remove from heat.
  • Wash, peel, and cut the turnips into half-inch wide sticks. Fill each jar.
  • Wash, peel, and halve the beet. Rough chop each half and put half into each quart jar. If using pints, quarter the beet and put a quarter in each jar.
  • Add half the garlic and the peppercorns to each jar
  • Fill each jar with the boiled mixture from the saucepan. Leave 1/2" of headspace.
  • Place lid on jars and let cool completely. Then place in the fridge for 5 days before eating. Make sure to shake the jars at least once a day to ensure even distribution of beet coloring and flavor.
  • From here you can leave them in the fridge, they are good for up to 2 weeks, or you can water-bath can for long-term preservation (see notes).


  • When processing pickled turnips in a water bath canner at sea level in quart-sized jars, it's recommended to process them for 15 minutes. This ensures proper sealing and preservation.
  • Should you water bath can, you do not need to sterilize your jars beforehand, as you will be processing for longer than 1o minutes.
  • Water-bath canning allows you to store these turnips for upwards of 2 years.
