In the kitchen with Sharon this week is my good friend Virginia Purdy. She is an educator, 2010 Highland County Women’s Hall of Fame inductee and, of course, a great cook and a great friend. She is sharing her recipe for pickled eggs and beets.
I love pickled eggs and beets. I have never made them, but I will now. Thank you, Virginia, for sharing this wonderful recipe. I know you have lots of great recipes, so send some more.
Pickled Eggs and Beets
(A Taste of Home)
1 can (13 ¼ oz) sliced beets (I use pickled)
½ cup sugar
¼ cup vinegar
½ cinnamon stick
6 whole cloves (optional)
8 hard cooked eggs
Drain beets, reserving juice. Add enough water to juice to measure three-quarters of a cup. Place in saucepan. Add sugar, vinegar, cinnamon stick and cloves. Bring to a boil. Remove from the heat. Place eggs in bowl; top with beets. Pour liquid over all. Cover and chill for four hours or overnight. Remove cinnamon stick and cloves before serving. Yield: 8 servings.
