An Easter recipe, a cool art project, a beautiful work of art, and an incredibly delicious snack — that’s exactly what Beet Pickled Eggs are.

After using all my pickled beets in the kale sprout salad last week, I reserved the beet brine, knowing I wanted to use it for something.  I had no idea what, though.

As I was hard boiling eggs the next day and a little light went off in my head.  I decided to add hard boiled, peeled eggs to the beet brine.

Here’s what happened . . .

In the same jar where I’d pickled the beets, I added the peeled, hard boiled eggs
to the  brine and let them hang out there, in the refrigerator for three days.

The result was simply gorgeous.

When I sliced them in half, they were just as stunning.

Finally, I tasted them.  Delicious!

I say, get started on pickling your beets and eat them in salads for a couple days, — then do what I did, and create this awesome, delicious, beautiful work of art!  And wow your friends and family with them this weekend.

P.S. Next time I’m reserving the beet brine for a really delicious cocktail my friend Greg of Sippity Sup makes.  The recipe will be in his up coming book about savory cocktails — I’ll keep you posted. :-)

Just two words – absolutely gorgeous! Plus I know how delicious beets and hard boiled eggs + cooked potatoes are in a salad with a creamy horseradish vinaigrette – great for Passover.

Pickled eggs…traditional Pennsylvania Dutch food!


Denny Felizzi March 12, 2013 at 3:28 pm

Here in the Pennsylvania Dutch Country we do that all the time. Yes they are very tasty.
Another way we do eggs is to use yellow mustard. Also,very tasty :)

Denny, I will try the mustard next. Great idea. Enjoy! :-)

I’ve never had pickled eggs,
but this is how I’m going to try them for the first time.
Gorgeous, Valentina!

Thanks so much, Caroline! :-)

These are wonderful. I adore the vibrant colour and they would look great in a salad as you mentioned. I wondered if you have ever made Chinese Marbled Tea Eggs? I have the recipe on my site, but the reason I mention it, is that I think your egg idea would also look cool if you cracked the shell slightly and then left them for a time in the beet juice, therefore having the marbled effect when you take off the shell. I’ll try your way though. Lovely post. best Torie

oooh, I must try it that way — a marbled egg is so beautiful. Thank you!
