Pickled Beets

Recipe from a friend: 

3-4 pounds beets
1 1/2 cups of balsamic vinegar
2 or 3 cloves of garlic.

Bake the whole, washed, beets in a (I forgot to look at this, but
this is about the only temperature my oven knows) 350º oven until done-
-longer than you think, an hour or a little more.  On a cookie sheet
or a broiler rack.

Towards the end of this time reduce the 1 1/2 cups of vinegar on top
of the stove down to 3/4 of a cup.  Keep watching it.  Too much below
that and you end up with burning carbon.  It's pretty nasty, and
Balsamic Vinegar is too expensive to waste.

Peel and chop the slightly cooled beets, put into a bowl, add (and
toss with) the still-hot vinegar and finely chopped garlic.

Pungent and wonderful.
