    Kat's Mom's Note:

    These are simple to make and my family's favorite. We prefer these because they use less sugar than some other recipes and no brown sugar at all. I never cared for beets until I tried these. From my Best-Loved Pennsylvania Dutch Recipes booklet that, sadly, is falling apart page-by-page. The longer they marinate, the redder the eggs become. Great in salads and a beautiful decoration on any platter. NOTE: Prep time does not include hard-boiling eggs or marinating time. 09/16/07 - There are two basic types of red beet eggs and this is my favorite. If you use cider vinegar and add cloves, cinnamon and allspice these become more like spiced apples and closer to Pickled Red Beets. Since these spices can trigger my asthma, I find this simple recipe perfect.

      Having lived in and around Dutch country all my life, this is the closest thing to what I've been making for years. I use cider vinegar and I put the eggs in the mixture while they are warm. The longer they are in the liquid, the better they get! When I make them I wait at least 2 days before I serve them. Mix the vinegar and sugar AND the beet juice to your taste, add a pinch of onion or other spices, and you're good to go!

      These were good but even after three days in the fridge the eggs still didn't have much flavor. The beets were awesome but the eggs the flavor did not draw through the beets. I followed the recipe other then I added another 1/2 tablespoon of sugar as they were a bit tart for me.

      This is the same recipe that I grew up eating in Central PA. I personally don't think anything should be changed. I've never heard of adding cinnamon or allspice to red beat eggs. This will be the one that I'm sticking to from here on out. Thanks for posting!
