How To Make Classic Pickled Eggs And Red Beets Recipe

Pickled Eggs and Red Beets Recipe

My husband makes the best pickled eggs and beets that I have ever tasted, I really don't think its the ingredients but its the way he prepares them.

6-8 hard boiled eggs, shells peeled off
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 can of sliced beets with juice
2 cups of water
1 tsp. salt (optional)

In a large sauce pan combine the water, granulated sugar, vinegar, salt and just the beet juice (reserve the beets) and bring to a boil. Boil for 3-4 minutes and then turn down to low. Add in the sliced beets and continue cooking on low for 5 minutes. Let beet juice and sliced beets mixture cool for 10 minutes. Pour into your pickled egg container and add in your 6-8 hard boiled eggs, seal container and place into your refrigerator for 6-8 hours before serving.

Wow--you are from Central PA with this Pickled Eggs & Beets recipe--that took me back to my childhood! Thanks for stopping by my blog, I appreciate it! And now I have to go back to your PA blog and see what you have for Strasburg Railroad, one of our family's very favorite spots!
