I usually add 2 cans of beets because I like beets. This recipe keeps well in the refrigerator, and you can add more eggs or beets to the juice at any time, if you need to. Well recieved at picnics and potlucks.
This is an easy recipe that my grandmother used to serve in the spring. My brother still refers to this dish as Easter eggs. Slices of onion or hot pepper may also be added to the pickling liquid with the beets and eggs. Use up all those pickled beets.
Ever since I can remember, my Mother served this pickled egg recipe at Easter. It was a tradition that my family expected. I made them for my granddaughter the last time she visited and they were all gone before she left.
