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?
Shawn I just canned beets last night in the pressure canner and they did the exact same thing....I am so upset...they were beautiful before I put them in the pressure canner...I do not know what to do differently. If you find out let me know please
I am still searching for the answer. No one has been able to tell me what I need to do differently. Although I have heard that you should use small rosebud beets and not remove the bottoms and tops. I used large beets and I cut them up.
