Use four cans of beets next year(2012) and 24 eggs. Peel them right after cooking. Send good ones with Joshua.



Red Beet Eggs
( dozen)

Prepare Pickled Red Beets. After beets have been pickled, remove them and replace with hard-cooked eggs. Let stand in juice 8 to 12 hours so that flavor penetrates whole egg.
