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.
