I know I’ve said it before but it’s worth saying again, we like eggs and we eat a lot of eggs around here. We have a flock of lazy chickens right now but I’m sure they will start laying again soon. I make these when we have more eggs than we can give away.
I try to keep a couple of large glass gallon size containers with lids for making these in. These are also a favorite treat around Easter. I try to make them a week ahead of time as the longer they sit they better they taste!
- 4 -15 ounce cans whole beets (I like to use the pickles beets when I can find them)
- 24 hard-cooked eggs, peeled
- 2 c. sugar
- 2 c. water
- 2 c. apple cider vinegar
Drain beets, reserving 2 cup juice.
Place beets and eggs in a gallon size glass jar.
Bring the sugar, water, vinegar, and beet juice to a boil.
Pour over beets and eggs; cool.
Add water, if needed, to cover the eggs.
Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving.
