My Own Holiday: Pickled Eggs and Beets

Yes, I am having my very own holiday (because I want to). These are usually served around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.

This is one of my favorite foods, and when I get a craving for them I make them (no holiday necessary).

I think that jar of pickled eggs and beets looks gorgeous, and I can't wait for them to sit for a couple days to soak up the flavors.

I could only wait 18 hours and I indulged.... a little bit too early, but I enjoyed it anyway.

This recipe came from a friend of mine (an ex coworker that I spent many years with).

Jill would treat me every time she made these. I loved them so much that she gave me the recipe.

Pickled Eggs and Beets

4 - #2 cans of beets
1 cup of vinegar
1 cup of sugar
4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
dash of pepper

Bring all of the above to a boil (not the beets just the juice). Let cool and pour over beets and eggs. Chill and let sit for a couple days.

"The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but man is tested by the praise he receives."
Proverbs 27:21

Praise tests a person, just as high temperatures test metal. How does praise affect you? Do you work hard to get it? Do you work harder after you receive it? Our attitude toward praise tells a lot about our character. Most people of high integrity are not swayed by praise. We are attuned to our inner convictions, and we do what we should whether or not we are praised for it.

  2. My family puts the eggs in a jar of already pickeled beets for 48hrs and the eggs turn a beautiful purple color. Sometimes my grandmother adds additional vinegar and sugar but I don't. I grew up eating them at every holiday.
