[cooking] Pickled eggs and beets

I've never had a pickled egg. I like pickled things and I like eggs but I never saw the appeal. Until I saw a picture of a cut hardboiled egg that was pickled with beets. It was sooooooo pretty that I had to try it myself. And here it is:

Beet pickled eggs

The color is amazing.

The recipe was:

6 hardboiled eggs

Simmer a can of baby beets (with juice) with 1/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup cider vinegar, 1/2 cup water. And I added a couple tablespoons of Japanese 7 Spice (leftover from when I pickled ramps last spring).

Put the eggs in a big jar, cover with beet brine, wait a few days. These are good but kind of stinky. Dollar is counting the minutes until they're gone for good.
