Pickled beet eggs are hard boiled eggs that are cured in a brine of beets, beet juice, vinegar, sugar, cloves and other spices. There are many regional variations[2] to this classic dish, for instance some recipes substitute cider vinegar for white vinegar, and brown sugar for sugar.[3] Pickled beet eggs are easy to make and have a rich pink color after only a day.[4]
