- 1 cup onion (sliced)
- 2 (15 ounce) canssliced beets
- 1 cup cider vinegar

- Place the eggs, sliced onions, and beets in a large jar. Set aside.
- In a saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients and slowly boil for 10 minutes. Let cool.
- Pour the cooled vinegar solution over the eggs, onions and beets. If the juice does not cover them, add additional water/vinegar (1:1) to cover. Refrigerate.
- Can be eaten in 24-hours, but are better after a couple of days. Store in fridge.
This is a terrific pickled eggs with beets recipe that is so very simple to make using canned beets instead of fresh like how I normally make. Using canned beets really make sense for pickled eggs like this because beets are secondary player in this recipe. Love the use of juniper berries too. I followed the recipe completely except reduced the sugar just a smidgen only but I don't think that made any difference at all. Overall, I love the taste of these eggs, beets and onion. Served with pickled herring and glass of cabernet from California for a light lunch. Thank you Kathy228 for posting this recipe.
