Beet Juice-Pickled Deviled Eggs



TheKitchn w/small adjustments. A small test batch was prepared using three eggs. *I placed the hard boiled eggs into a Mason jar first then poured all the liquid from a 14-16 ounce can of diced beets into the jar followed by the apple cider and only added enough to completely cover the eggs.

How to Make Beet Juice-Pickled Deviled Eggs


  1. Hard boil your eggs and remove the shells. Set the eggs aside to cool.
  2. BRINE: Pour the juice from a can of beets into a large mason jar or non-reactive bowl. Add cider vinegar, sugar, peppercorns, and salt-enough to cover. Carefully (that beet juice will stain!) lower the peeled eggs into the brine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 12 hours, or up to 3 days. The longer you leave them in the brine, the more sour and pink they'll end up. I brined the eggs for 24 hours.
  3. FILLING: When brining time is finished, cut each egg in half and scoop out yolks. Place yolks in a medium-sized bowl, along with the Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, curry powder and olive oil. Mix and mash until smooth. Add a little bit of milk or cream to the mixture for extra creaminess. Salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Using a pastry bag or a plastic bag with the corner cut off, pipe the yolk mixture back into the pink egg cavities. Garnish with chopped herb and season with salt and pepper.
