Pickled Eggs

This is a recipe I grew up with, and my son grew up with, and my granddaughter grew up with. This is requested as the dish I should bring every time there is a family get-together.



  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 1 large can sliced beets
  • 1/2 cup more or less sugar
  • 1/2 cup more or less apple cider vinegar


Boil the eggs as usual, cool, and remove shells. Place the peeled eggs in a large jar.

Put beets and juice in a saucepan and add vinegar and sugar to taste. It should be a sweet sour taste. Bring to a boil.

Remove the beets and place them in a bowl or jar to be eaten hot or cold as sweet-sour beets.

Pour liquid into the jar so it covers the eggs. Let them set at least until the eggs turn color. I put mine in the refrigerator overnight.

My family likes them so well that we eat them any time. My mother made them for holidays or family get-togethers.

Servings: 12
Time:10-15 Minutes Preparation Time
15 Minutes Cooking Time
