Anyone with silkies probably already has a pickled beets/eggs recipe, but here's Anne's mother's that I've been eating/loving for 44 years.

Marjorie Norcross's "Pink Pickled Eggs with Beets"

6 eggs (Anne eplaces the "6 eggs" with a dozen silkie eggs)
1 large can of sliced beets with juice
1 cup cider vinegar
4 garlic clove, crushed
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. salt
1/4 +/- tsp. of black pepper

Hard cook the eggs, plunge into cold water, and shell immediately.
Put the eggs into a large glass jar. Combine the rest of the ingredients and pour over the eggs.
Cover and refrigerate for at least eight hours.

These sound so very good that I'm picking up extra eggs and beets at the grocery tomorrow.

DH and FIL love pickled eggs- and they also love hot peppers and onions.
That's very similar to my basic recipe, I add onions, sliced into thick rings, and a jalapeno pepper slit partially lengthwise. It certainly adds a whoopie factor to them!


Thanks, Joe, Anne and Mrs. Norcross!

The pickle brine will infilitrate the eggs. Let them sit for several days in the fridge. When you slice them you will see pink all the way through.
