Pickled Eggs are a classic appetizing and mouth-watering, ready-to-serve snack made from hard-boiled eggs preserved in vinegar and brine. This dish owes to the fact that it is a combination of sweet, salty, and sour. Also, I like that you can prepare it once and can be preserved and stored in a jar for several months.
First, add water into a large pot, and bring to a boil.Next, gently place the eggs into the boiled water using a slotted spoon and boil for 8-9 minutes.
Next, in a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, beet juice - if using, salt, and pepper.Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for about 5 mins.Place eggs and other ingredients in a mason jar, quart jar, or glass container.
Pour over the eggs and beets, cover, and refrigerate.The eggs are usually seasoned with various condiments, such as mustard seeds, garlic cloves, bay leaves, dill seeds, red onions, and others.Wait for 48 hours and it is ready to use.
This makes it very handy and convenient for surprise guests or just to have a healthy snack ready to serve.It is also convenient because it can be made with leftover Easter eggs. If you run out of options of what to do with them, this is the perfect recipe to utilize some!
