Pickled Eggs

Prep Time:8 Hours
Cook Time:20 Minutes

Nutritional Information

Pickling these eggs in beets gives them a beautiful purple color that is great for presentation.


  • 1 pound red beets, stems and leaves removed
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 1/8 teaspoon pickling spice
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • Fresh dill sprigs, garnish
  • Sliced rye bread, as an accompaniment
  • whole grain mustard, see recipe


  • 1. To hard boil the Eggs Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add a sprinkle of salt. Once it comes to a boil carefully drop in the room temperature eggs. Once the water comes back to a boil, set the timer for 11 minutes. Once the timer is up, remove from the heat and shock in cold water. Once the eggs are completely cool, peel. Do not let the eggs sit too long before peeling, otherwise peeling becomes very difficult.
  • 2. Preheat the Egg to 350 degrees F using indirect heat.
  • 3. Wrap the beets tightly in aluminum foil and roast until tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Remove from the grill, uncover, and let sit until cool enough to handle. When cool, slip the skins from the beets and cut into eighths.
  • 4. In a non-reactive saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, peppercorns, and pickling spice. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and let sit for 2 hours for the flavors to develop. Add the eggs, onions, garlic, and beets and turn to coat evenly. Cover tightly and refrigerate, turning occasionally, until the eggs are a deep pink color, at least 8 hours and up to 24 hours.
  • 5. To serve, remove the eggs, beets, and onions from the marinade and arrange on a platter. Garnish with sprigs of dill and serve with sliced rye bread and mustard.
