I found this recipe in a very old family cookbook. My dad used to make these all of the time.

  • 16 ounces canned beets, undrained
  • 34 cup cider vinegar
  • 14 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pickling spices
  • 13 cup water
  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Place eggs in a wide mouthed, half-gallon canning jar or other covered container.

I didnt have any pickling spices so I used one teaspoon of whole cloves and 2 cinnamon sticks.
