Living with several Amish country neighbors, we have had lots of wonderful culinary experiences. This super simple, super scrumptious, sweet side dish "beet" similar recipes I have tried.

How to Make Teacherman's Amish Pickled Eggs and Beets

Step-by-Step

  • 1Boil the eggs, cool and peel.
  • 2Put beets, onion and peeled eggs in a large glass or plastic jar that has a lid
  • 3In medium saucepan, combine sugar, 1 cup beet juice, vinegar, salt, pepper, bay leaves and cloves. Boil, then simmer 10 minutes.
  • 4Pour saucepan contents into jar, screw on lid, and refrigerate at least two days.
  • 5**NOTE: Shake up jar two times a day for even coloring. I refrigerate for FOUR days to have the purple hue permeate the entire egg white. Sometimes I cut the eggs in half right before serving for an added visual pizazz!

    **Also, I've boiled fresh beets, reserving that juice, and have had great-if not better-results.
