Just look at that vibrant purple/pink color…don’t they just look beautiful?!

The eggs have been pickled for (at least) 2 days in a delicious, spiced, tangy and slightly sweet mixture of beets, garlic, onion, vinegar, sugar, cloves and bay leaves. These eggs, bursting with flavor, are very tasty and look absolutely amazing.

Although eggs steal the show, sliced beets and onions are just as good! Pickled eggs with beets make a great appetizer or snack and are a colorful addition to any salad. Also, they look wonderful on the Easter table and are naturally dyed!

This recipe is easy and quick to make with just a few basic ingredients.

    These are far from new news. Pickled beets are a staple in most southern homes around Easter and have been for at least 90 years.

    This is a really old recipe. My grandmother made them often. I'm 77 so you know how old! Nice to see it here.

      Hi Ton,

      It's indeed an old recipe. Old, but gold (as we say in the Netherlands).

      Have a wonderful day,
