The truth be told, my husband who hates beets, ate them too.
These kind of things have been in my family for a long time. I think it is a Polish thing. My Grandparents always had pickled eggs and beets around. Eh hem, along with pickled pigs feet. No, I have not made those yet. Will I? I don't think so.
Pickled Eggs with BeetsMy cousin puts pickling spices in hers. Some people just put cloves. Whatever your taste. I like them plain.
3 cups water
1 1/2 cups (more or less to your taste) white vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
pickling spices if you like, me I like them plain
2 cups beats
6 hard boiled eggs
In a small pot boil the beets whole until tender. They are much easier to skin when they are cooked. If having pink hands bothers you, make sure you wear gloves.
In another pot boil the water and vinegar and salt. Pour into the jar you plan to use to keep them in. Let cool.
Dice cooked beets into pieces you can eat easily or slice them. Whatever way you like. Add them to the vinegar brine. Add in peeled eggs. After about a day they will turn pink. As each day passes the pink will delve further into the egg. These are fine in your refrigerator for a couple weeks. I think they would keep longer but they kind of disappear before then around here.
