What's this?

The vibrant color of beet-pickled eggs is a show stopper for your Easter table. This memorable appetizer has as much flavor as it does color.

Ingredients

  • 6 Eggs, hard boiled

  • 1 Red Beets, scrubbed and trimmed

  • 1 Cup apple cider vinegar

  • 1 Cup Beet, juice

  • 1/4 Onion, Sliced

  • 1/3 Cup granulated sugar

  • 3 Cardamom

    Place the peeled hard boiled eggs directly on the grill and smoke for 30 minutes.

    In a medium sauce pan, add the vinegar, beet juice, onion, sugar, cardamom and anise.

    Remove from the heat and let cool for a few minutes.
