I can get 5 pound bags of beets from the local Hutterite farmers.
And, while I have no interest in getting into canning, I'd like to be able to put them up in jars and simply refrigerate. Can I do that? And would I do it just the same as if I were going to can them? i.e., put the cooked beets into pickling brine and then into jars, and then refrigerate?

Linda,

According to the interwebs, yes. That's just a beet pickle, as long as there's enough salt in the brine.

Got two 3 lb. bags of beets from the Hutterite farmers' market.
Really nice quality, small sizes.
I pressure cooked the beets for 15 mins. and then peeled and placed in four quart jars. Added the brine:

2 cups apple cider vinegar
2 cups water
2 cups granulated sugar
3 or 4 garlic cloves, sliced in half
(this amount of brine was exactly enough for my four quart jars.)

After two weeks I tasted these and they are wonderful! Every bit as good as any pickled beet I've ever had.
