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.
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."
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.
