My beets bled their colour, what did I do wrong?


I jarred some beets the other day and after I removed them from the pressure canner they had bled their colour. What did I do wrong? I prepared them as the instructions said and processed them at 11 pounds for 30 minutes as required and they lost their colour. What can I use them for or are they spoiled?

    I did that, it was when they were jarred and processed that they bled. They were beautiful are coloured before I put them in the pressure canner. Any thoughts?
