    I hoped some one else would give advice because i hate eggs and beets so im trusting my wife and giving you her recipe. Boil 4-6 eggs. Set aside to cool. Slice beets. In a pot pour 1/3 cup white vinegar 1/3 cup sugar and 1/3 teaspoon cinnaman and add beets. Bring this to a boil till sugar is dissolved. Peel your eggs. Dump this mixture over eggs and chill. If you dont like this please dont hold it against me because i cant tell you if its good or not. Im trusting her. Hope you like it.

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Here is one way.

    Pickled, Eggs, Dave

    12 Eggs; hard boiled
    1/2 cup Vinegar
    1 Can Beets, red
    1 Tbs Sugar


    1. Cover peeled eggs with beet juice, vinegar, etc. Refrigerate at least overnight before serving. I got this recipe by marriage, thirty-some odd years ago. My wife's (Debby) family made these since who knows when.

    Yield: 1 Dozen Eggs

    Recipe Type: Appetizer, Snack

    They're best if left for three or four days before you eat them.

    I'll try to find my grandmother's. I'll let you know.
  • We buy the pickled beets in jars, hardboil a dozen eggs and let cool then peel. Get a large container, we use a giant pickle jar, add the eggs, 2 jars of pickled beets, 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, and a some whole cloves. Takes like 3 days to be ready and will keep for a couple weeks. Makes great egg salad too!

  • Thanks for the replies. I'm not sure which one to try yet but I did pick up a few dozen eggs from my local chicken farmer tonight. Maybe I'll try to make them on Friday.

    Just a tip, FWIW "old" eggs work best for hard boiling/peeling rather than fresh.

    That is true. Some folks put baking soda and or vinegar in the boiling water to make them easier to peel.
