Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Beetin' up eggs

Last nite, after a lot of brussel sprouts, blue cheese, and red wine... it occurred to me that I have not recently adequately expressed my love of  beets. You can't beat beets, that is for sure. But the next best thing to beets is - beet pickled eggs. Yep. It's a thing.

Aren't they lovely?

I've already finished off one jar of beets and I had all of this lovely pickled beet juice. I couldn't let it go to waste - and then one of my pals reminded me about pickled hard cooked eggs. Ever since I learned of the miracle of steamed eggs I've been using a lot of had cooked eggs. So I fired up the steamer and make myself some pickled eggs. 

No really, aren't they just beautiful?

I love pickled eggs in salads. I love beets in salads. I love that the salad turns pink when you use beets.
 Seriously, isn't this the greatest thing?

I have a few more hard cooked eggs marinating in beet juice. My next step is to make deviled eggs out of the beet pickled eggs. I can't wait.

Happy Thursday everyone! Do you love beets? How about pickled eggs? How could you not?

I love beets, but have never tried this! I have seen them before, but never thought to try them. Might be fun!

We LOVE pickled beet eggs! *drooling* I think tomorrow, I will open a jar of beets...so we can have some too!

I only had beets once, sliced and sautéed in butter. They were alright, seemed kinda earthy. I would try those pink eggs, but... sweet potatoes is where it's at. Can I get a WUT?

Now that's a good idea!

Isn't this fun, WCG? :-)

Small bantam or quail eggs would be fun too, HDA.

WUT! I love roasted beets, Amanda, but really i love them in salads. And yes "earthy." But they get sweet when you roast them. People either love them or hate them. :-)

And they are so pretty, Vera!
