Pickled eggs and beets
6 hard boiled eggs- peeled
1 can sliced beets
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c salt
1/2 c vinegar
1/2 T peppercorns
3 bay leaves
heat sugar, salt, and vinegar, let cool
Add eggs and beets in layers, with bay leaves and peppercorns in quart mason jar and put in fridge.
After 3 days, eggs will have soaked up color and can now be sliced for salads, or I just like eating them straight with the beets and some mayo!
You can add eggs to mixture - I usually replace 2 or 3 before I make a new batch

I had never even heard of pickled eggs until my mom said it was one of her favorite childhood treats. I love beets, and this is a great way to have eggs that are about to expire last a little longer!
