Dear egg lovers, I’m certainly positive that today’s pickled eggs recipe will deservedly earn a nice spot on your most-favored egg recipes collection. It makes tasty and visually stunning eggs that my family actually can’t seem to keep them in stock for long.

Oh, I’ve heard many people keep on saying that pickled eggs are unhealthy, but it’s not true at all! Containing only 137 calories and 6.8 grams of protein, every pickled egg is actually good for your health. So, you shouldn’t ever be worried at all, and just enjoy your eggs to the fullest.

How to make your own pickled eggs

Making pickled eggs is never a complicated task to finish. All you’ve got to do is boil and peel the eggs, then cook the liquid mixture of beets, vinegar, sugar, cinnamon and water. After letting both the eggs and the mixture cool slightly, place both of them in a jar and seal.

Let the eggs absorb the liquid for 4-6 hours before transferring the jar to the fridge. This allows the eggs to have a brilliant pink color and an exquisite flavor.

Is it needed to keep pickled eggs in the fridge?

If you can’t consume the whole jar of eggs at one sitting, refrigerating it is a good move. The eggs can be preserved in a fridge for up to 3 weeks.

How is the taste of pickled eggs?

It’s taste is a blend of tanginess from vinegar and sweetness from the beet and sugar that my family, especially the kids, enjoy very much. Well, it’s kinda difficult to correctly describe the distinctive taste of pickled eggs, so you have to make it and try it yourself. Be sure to tell me how you feel!
