Pickled Red Beet Eggs

Enjoy eating beautifully colored hard boiled eggs that are pickled.  It’s easy and they taste delicious!

Ingredients

  • 2 dozen hard boiled eggs
  • 1 onion sliced and separated
  • 1 can red beets (sliced, whole or even diced)
  • 1814 cup sugar to taste (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vinegar or more to taste

Method

  1. Place the peeled hard boiled eggs into a large glass jar. Add the contents of the can of red beets (juice and all) to the hard boiled eggs.  Continue adding the rest of the ingredients to the jar.
  2. Fill the rest of the jar with water.  Cover and refrigerate.  The red beet eggs will be ready to eat within 24 hours.
  3. Remember, the longer they stay, the darker the color and the more intense the flavor of the eggs become.

NOTE: If the eggs are still hot or even on the warm side when making them, they will absorb the color of the red beets even faster!
