Pickled Eggs and Beets

Total Time:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Wrap the beets tightly in aluminum foil and roast until tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Remove from the oven, uncover, and let sit until cool enough to handle. When cool, slip the skins from the beets and cut into eighths.

In a non-reactive saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, peppercorns, and pickling spice. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and let sit for 2 hours for the flavors to develop. Add the eggs, onions, garlic, and beets and turn to coat evenly. Cover tightly and refrigerate, turning occasionally, until the eggs are a deep pink color, at least 8 hours and up to 24 hours.

To serve, remove the eggs, beets, and onions from the marinade and arrange on a platter. Garnish with sprigs of dill and serve with sliced French bread.

    This recipe makes delicious red beet eggs. I make it every year when my beets are fresh from the garden and everyone looks forward to it!
    This is hands down the finest pickled beet and egg recipe you will find. After trying this you will not need to try another. It is that good!
    This is the best pickled eggs & beets Ive ever had! Its easy to make too. I thought it might be a little bitter but it wasnt at all. Im even going to make a jar for my inlaws......I didnt change a thing in this recipe. You dont need to.
    I can't remember who said that this was a new recipe and wouldn't give the recipe but here's a much easier recipe.It's one my family has been using since before my great-grandmother was born. 1 can of pickled beets,1 can of water,and 1 can of white vinegar.Pour into big pitcher.Add as many hard-boiled eggs as you can fit into your container and still have the eggs covered by pickling juice.Wait at least 8 to 10 hours for eggs to become purple.Eat and enjoy. P.S. DON'T toss pickling juice!!!!! Just add more hard-boiled eggs and enjoy again.The waiting is the hardest part.
    My dad and grandpap would've loved these. Just like we use to get at the tavern, with the Penrose pickled sausage. Great with a cold beer.
    this recipe was very good. the eggs were especially delicious. i also tried alton brown's pickled beets recipe - we liked that one better and it was easier to make with less ingredients. i added the eggs to alton's recipe and we love it.
    A nice side dish any time of the year.
    I will be making more soon.
    My Nana used to make these beets, just like this. Always apple cider vinegar and ususally fresh beets and onions. I made a jar of these for my sister and gave them to her for her birthday, just to remind us both of Nana; who is long departed. I'll make them again and again for that reason alone. They are delicious.
    easy to make and packed with flavor. a must try for those that love pickled food.
    This is another recipe that's easy to make and even better to eat! Hubby loves it...make it for summer picnics all the time!
    Not Bad but I let them sit 48 hours to get more flavor.
    this is the best one that i've found
    Excellent recipe. No one in my family would eat beets - in my husband's case, he has strongly disliked beets since childhood. I doubled the recipe and it vanished within 24 hours - even the beets! Thank you!
    He could not believe they were really ready in 24hrs!! I made them with fresh beets from my garden. This recipe will definitely be used again and again!!
    We had them as a side dish with grilled hamburgers and potato salad. tasted great
