PICKLED EGGS AND BEETS

 

  • Cooking Time: 15
  • Servings: 3-4
  • Preparation Time: 10

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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

Notes

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!
