A great way to make your eggs at Christmas or any other time. My mom always kept these in a big jar in the refrigerator. They make a yummy snack or a wonderful addition to the dinner table. They are great at Easter also!
1 cup sugar
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup water
3 Tablespoons red food coloring 1 teaspoon salt
Heat all the above ingredients on the stove in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil.
Pour over 1 dozen hard boiled (peeled) eggs. (I use a gallon glass jar, you can do more eggs if you have a big enough container to hold them).
Open one jar of red beets (or a can if you use store type) and pour off juice into the container and then lay the beets on top of the eggs to hold them down under the juice. Let set in refrigerator 24 hrs.
When serving I slice the eggs in half and put on a egg platter. And then dish the beets into a separate dish.
