Pickled Eggs

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by wildheart

These pickled eggs taste just like the eggs that general stores used to sell! Add 1 cup beet juice if you'd like pink pickled eggs.

Thank you for printing this recipe; my mother used to make these very often (they tended to disappear) and there was always a big jar of them in the refrigerator. I had lost her recipe, and have been searching for years to find one that seemed to be closest to hers. Yours is just perfect. With much gratitude. Doreen. (PS The beet juice is a great idea; mother also used to use vegetable colouring and made some red and some green for Christmas - I have done this and it made a sensation!)
