On our first attempt as we travel down the road to perfecting the pickled egg we made beet pickled eggs. I have a lot of small beets in the garden that did not want to continue growing so I thought, perfect, I have a reason to try those beet pickled eggs I always think about.
I used most of the recipe on SimplyRecipes but omitted the star anise as I did not have any on hand and don’t prefer the flavor anyhow. The recipe turned out great and I cannot wait to try new variations of it. With my beet pickled eggs I made a lovely deviled egg I wanted to share with you here.
