I don’t often share recipes.
I don’t even like to cook.
But, when my friend Darla from bay side to mountain side
asked what we do with beets, I had to share :)
Pickled Red Beet Eggs
I love beets, but this is the best, yummiest way to eat them!
First you need to hard boil some eggs.
I always do at least a dozen, we can’t get enough.
As a side note, SAVE the water that you boil the eggs in!
After it cools, feed it to your plants, they love the calcium.
Anyway, back to the beets.
Peel and slice the beets, put them in a pot with just enough water to cover them.
Use good water, not city water.
Simmer them for about 20 minutes.
Then turn off the heat and add 1 cup of Organic Sugar
and 2 cups vinegar. ( I use apple cider or red wine)
And about 8 whole cloves.
Stir until the sugar is melted.
Put the PEELED eggs in a jar and add the beets and the juice.
When the are cool,
put them in the fridge and try to forget about them
for at least 24 hours.
The longer the sit, the better they get!
Try this recipe, even if you don’t think you like beets.
You can thank me later.
