how can I dye salt with beets?

Basically I want to corn beef , i do not have saltpeter or Potassium nitrate I heard you could dye salt with beets and then use that to cure the beef and get the lovely pink color.

What do you think?

Should I boil the beets in my brine then brine the beef?

chop them up raw and place them in the salt? then use the salt in the brine?
