Karina's StoryIf you love pickled eggs you will love this recipe. I found a beet and cinnamon pickled egg recipe but I did a couple things different. I love them and so do my kids. When they first tried them they said yummy. If you are going to make a pickled egg recipe I recommend this one. I recommend you do a double batch because they will not last long.
hard boiled eggs peeled
apple cider vinegar
unsweetened apple juice
beets plus the juice
orange zested and juiced
cinnamon stick or 2 tsp ground cinnamon
sliced red onions
1Have your 3 cup sterilized canning jar ready. Add already cooked and peeled hard boiled eggs. Get your beets in the jar I just use half of the can.
2In a sauce pan add water, sugar ,apple juice,orange juice, zest, ground clove, cinnamon stick, vinegar and onions. Empty the beet juice from the can into the pot and simmer until sugar dissolves and onions start to become soft. Pour hot broth over the eggs and put a lid on the jar. Let the jar cool down for 10-15 minutes. Put in fridge over night or up to 7 days depending how well you like your eggs pickled.

Karina, your recipe sounds exciting. May I inquire on the sized can of beets you are using. Is it 14oz. or 28oz. per can? Are you buying the already sliced Beets? I want to follow your instructions exactly, and not mess up what sounds like a perfect 'Refrigerator Pickle'! I must admit that I used to be very reluctant to serve Beets. My Mom used just one recipe for preparing the little red beasts and I was just turned off by the site of them. A very well intentioned friend brought me a homemade antipasto just after I had experienced the loss of a close relative. She put out the antipasto and insisted that I try a couple of the beets, for the good she felt they would do me after such a shock. What a surprise! They were really good! I have spent a lot of time looking for more recipes for preparing beets and yours is simply outstanding. Thank you for posting this recipe on JAP. LOL :-)

Karina...I love pickled eggs. I have made them in the pickled beets lots of time but never put cinnamon in with it...this sounds like a great recipe, will give it a try.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks I use the 14 ounce can and it was the sliced can. I was looking for the baby ones but they didn't have them at the store. I just used half the can and put the rest in a plastic bag for another batch later. I had never tried beets in my life before until 3 years ago when I started making juice and I fell in love with them. Then I saw a recipe for pickled eggs that called for beets but it only had cinnamon in it. So I decided to make it different and the results were amazing I know you will love this recipe.
