My Pennsylvania Dutch grandmother, Florence Walter, used to make these. They are especially great for picnics. The combination of pickled eggs, beets, and onions is really something special. A great way to use up left-over Easter-eggs too!
Original recipe makes 12 servings
1 (15 ounce) can beets
1 onion, thinly sliced
12 hard cooked eggs, shelled and left whole
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
- Drain liquid from the beets into saucepan. Place beets, onions, and eggs into a large bowl or pitcher.
- Pour sugar and vinegar into the saucepan with the beet liquid and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, and let the mixture simmer 15 minutes.
- Pour the beet juice mixture over the beets, eggs, and onions. Seal the bowl or pitcher and refrigerate. Refrigerate for at least one to 3 days; the longer they are allowed to sit the better they will taste.
