  1. Drain juice from canned beets into a large container with a lid; stir in apple cider vinegar, sugar, and water until sugar has dissolved.
  2. Mix sliced beets, hard-cooked eggs, and sweet onion into the liquid; add more water so liquid covers eggs completely if needed.
  3. Cover container and refrigerate for 1 to 3 days, stirring the eggs and beets twice daily. The longer they soak, the deeper the eggs' color will be.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I have found when hard-boiling eggs -DO NOT USE SUPER-FRESH EGGS. They are harder to peel than older ones. Also I put a pin-hole in the large end of the egg and add a dash of vinegar to the egg water.
