Pickled Beet Eggs

JoSele Swopes


My husband absolutely loves these...He will eat a jar by his self...When the kids were little is when I started making them when we lived on base...I always ate the beets and my husband ate the eggs...The beets turn the white of the egg purple from the juice...The longer you leave them in the juice the darker the white becomes....
