Pickled Eggs in Beet Juice

Pickled beets are a summer favorite for me ever since I discovered Grandma’s Pickled Beets recipe. Did you know you can save that pickled beet juice to make a whole new recipe.

Using leftover beet juice to make pickled hard boiled eggs results in one of the most beautiful foods you’ll ever see. The red beet juice soaks into the white of the hard boiled eggs to dye them a bright pink color. The pink against the bright yellow of the yolks is as pretty as a picture.

The flavor is something unique. If you’re a pickle lover, then run, don’t walk to try these pickled eggs and beets.

Old Fashioned Pickled Beets and Eggs Recipe

I found this pickled beets and eggs recipe in my new cookbook I got on vacation in West Virginia. My family went to mass while we were up in the mountains, and it must have been sent from God himself.

The ladies of the church were selling their cookbook called Heavenly Food From Our Holy Mountain, so of course, I bought one for myself.

This pickled eggs in beet juice recipe was one the first recipes that jumped out at me. I’ve always loved how beautiful red pickled eggs tend to be. There’s nothing quite like that purple, red ring around the edge.

What can I do with leftover pickled beet juice?

Are you wondering what do to with that leftover red pickled beet juice after you’ve eaten all the beets? Do not pour it down the drain.

Instead, add a few ingredients including water, white vinegar, brown sugar, and pickling spice while it’s simmering on the oven. Then, pour over peeled hard-boiled eggs that are still warm.  Let them marinate in the refrigerator for a half a day or more, and you have yourself an amazing southern snack.
