Beet Juice Pickled Eggs

One of fun ways to pickle eggs is in beet juice so that the egg whites turn a pretty pink. The beet brine, which is guaranteed to add a little magic to your food, contains beet juice, apple cider vinegar, allspice, bay leaf, chilli pepper and salt. I didn't add extra sugar because the beet juice is sweet enough. You can use other spices like cloves, mustard seeds, onion, caraway seeds, and peppers to the brine. Allow to sit for 48 hours or more for maximum flavour. Serve with a salad for a light meal or enjoy them as a snack.

  • 6-8 Eggs, cooked to your liking
  • 500 ml Organic beet juice
  • 240 ml Organic apple cider vinegar (or wine vinegar)
  • 1 Cinnamon bark
  • 1 tsp Allspice
  • 2 Bay leaf
  • 1 Dried chilli pepper
  • 1/3 tsp Sea salt
  1. Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil. Add eggs and simmer for 6 minutes for soft-boiled or 9 minutes for hard-boiled eggs. Plunge the eggs into cold water to stop the egg from cooking any further.
  2. Combine the beet juice, ACV, cinnamon bark, allspice, bay leaf, chilli pepper, and salt in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil and allow it to simmer for 5 minutes. Turn the heat off and set aside to cool.
  3. Peel the eggs and place in a jar or bowl. When the brine has cooled, carefully pour over the eggs, making sure all the eggs are fully submerged in the liquid.
  4. Cover the bowl or close the jar and refrigerate at least overnight for slightly pickled eggs. If you want them to fully seasoned to the yolks, leave it 3 days. They will keep for months if fully submerged in the brine.
  5. Slice the egg and serve with a salad as an appetizer or a light lunch.

Beet juice pickled eggs look very pretty. Looks like our red eggs to celebrate a baby's full moon.

Looking good. Never had a pickled egg!

I have not had these eggs in years and years. one of my favorite foods growing up. My grandma would always make them for me. I grew up canning and preserving foods-so Mom and Grandma always canned their own pickled beets-with beets from the gardens-thanks for the memories-I may need to make me some

Easyfoodsmith 21/3/22 11:23

The colour of the pickled eggs looks so pretty! And the flavours that you added to the brine are amazing.

The food looks good. Never had a pickled egg but they remind me of deviled eggs.

How festive and gorgeous are these pickled eggs, Angie! Such a great idea to use beet juice for that vibrant color.

Eva Taylor 22/3/22 13:46

What a beautiful Easter dish! I use dehydrated beets to colour various food so I can only imagine that pickling with beet juice is amazing. What a fabulous idea.

Mijú 22/3/22 15:36

Paseando por los blogs te he conocido y ¡mira que me he encontrado! unos espectaculares huevos morados, no había oído hablar de los huevos en escabeche y no dudes que los prepararé, lo malo es que no se si voy a encontrar zumo de remolacha orgánico. Desde Barcelona, un beso

Choclette 22/3/22 17:16

Such a clever idea Angie and those eggs look so pretty too. I've never been a fan of pickled eggs, but these don't look too heavy on the vinegar and really, how could I not try them?

David 22/3/22 21:33

Angie, Very festive! Great presentation especially if someone was hosting a small gathering. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Cooking Julia 22/3/22 21:51

Looks like we were both craving eggs this week. :) I've never had beet pickled eggs and would love to try them. They certainly make a beautiful presentation.

Being vegan, I don't know what they taste like but they sure do look pretty!

[Reply] 23/3/22 13:57

So pretty and I bet they are packed with flavor!

tigerfish 24/3/22 03:18

Reminded me of Chinese red-colored eggs that usually celebrates baby's 1st month

Yvonne @ Fiction Books Reviews 24/3/22 07:55

So simple to do, yet so effective and changes the whole look of the dish! :)

My name is Erika. 24/3/22 12:07

I can tell its been a busy week as I missed this post earlier. The red juice beet really makes those eggs very pretty. You always have such fabulous food photos too. Hope it has been a good week so far. Hugs-Erika

These are gorgeous, Angie! My friend, Dave, brought these as a garnish to an Asian noodle dish he made when we were in Yosemite. I'm not much of a hard boiled egg eater, but these were impossible to resist!

Raymund 24/3/22 23:45

That indeed is a cool and fun way to prepare eggs.

Amy (Savory Moments) 25/3/22 20:26

They are beautiful! I'm not sure I've ever seen beet juice at the store but what is more likely, I've never tried to find it :)

Noob Cook 3/5/22 13:30

I love natural food colours! These beetroot-coloured eggs are so pretty!
