“This is one of my favorite snack (rather have this then a candy bar). They are sweet and good! You could leave out the eggs and just have pickle beets (if that's the case use a few cans of beets). Let them sit in frig and the better they would get.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 14 cups apple cider vinegar (or regular if you don't have apple cider vinegar)
  • 23 cup brown sugar, packed (sometimes I mix brown and white)
  • 1 cup beet juice (you can add water to make it one cup)
  • 5 -8 whole cloves
  • 1 small onion, sliced (optional)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can beets (~15 oz, either sliced or chunks or whole beets)
  • 12 eggs


  1. Hard-boil Eggs (then take shells off).
  2. Place (stager) the eggs and beets (onions) in a wide-mouth glass jar (I like to recycle my old pickle jars).
  3. In a saucepan heat vinegar, sugar, beet juice, cloves. Bring to a boil, stir, simmer for ~20 minutes.
  4. Add juice to the jars (fill to top, covering eggs).
  5. Place in refrigerator, wait at least 24 hours then enjoy (will last for weeks in frig unless you know how to can).
