"Pickled eggs . . . . either you love em' or you hate em'!!!! I always know when I prepare a jar full they are mine, ALL mine. Hubby wouldn't dare touch them. My grandmother taught me to make these, and I also watched my Mom make them. Prep time does not include the time it takes to boil the eggs."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Combine the first 6 ingredients in large saucepan.

Step 2

Bring to a boil to dissolve sugar.

Step 3

Place peeled eggs in a large container and pour beets and pickling juice over them.

Step 4

Refrigerate at least 24 hours before serving -- the longer the beets and eggs "pickle" the better they will be.

Step 5

*NOTE: I tie the pickling spices in a piece of cheesecloth. Otherwise, the spices stick to the eggs and beets. Just keep the ball of spices in with the eggs and beets, do not discard it.

Step 6

NOTE 2: I like to use an old gallon pickle jar that I've kept just for these eggs -- they do best in a container that is on the "deeper" side rather than a shallow dish*

These eggs are great, As Kittencal mentioned in her review I also added in garlic and I used 1/3 cup pickling spice, the longer time they sit in the brine the stronger the flavor will be and a week or more for certain but don't expect them to last long, thanks for sharing your recipe here!

Great pickled eggs! These were different from ones I've made in the past because of the pickling spices. My pickling spices have allspice in them which ended up being the primary flavor...kinda nice for a change but not my favorite. Made for the Alphabet Soup recipe tag game.

I have not made these but I have tried them. Queenbea brought these to work (we work together) and they were so good. I must make a batch for myself.
