These beet pickled eggs are a fun appetizer or snack during Easter and make a great colorful addition to any salad. Easy and quick to make with just a few basic ingredients. Full of tangy flavors and I’m in love with that vibrant pink color!
What ingredients do you need for pickled eggs
- Eggs: Use the freshest eggs you can for this recipe. You will need to hard boil them first which you can do in an air fryer or on the stovetop.
- Vinegar: I like to use apple cider vinegar for the pickling juice. It has a less harsh flavor than white vinegar, but you can use any other vinegar you have on hand.
- Sugar: The sugar in the pickling liquid helps to balance out the sharpness of the vinegar. Use white cane sugar.
- Beets: For color and taste. Use packaged pre cooked beets or you can roast or boil raw ones before using them.
How to make beet pickled eggs
- Place the eggs into a large mason jar.
- Add the beets and pour over the pickling liquid. The pickling liquid is made up of the vinegar, sugar and water that you can heat together on the stovetop until the sugar dissolves.
- Allow the mixture to cool and then seal and place in the fridge for 24 hours. You can shake it around to evenly distribute the eggs and beets if you’d like.
Tips for making this recipe
- Use fresh beets if possible for a deeper color. However, some packaged cooked beets still have a strong hue, like the ones I used from Love Beets.
- Make sure not to overcook the eggs. When they pickle they will get more firm on the inside, so it’s best to slightly undercook them slightly or watch out not to overcook them.
- Ensure that the jar is cool before sealing it. If it is still hot, pressure from the steam can build up in the sealed jar.
- Make sure the pickling liquid is boiling. This will help the sugar dissolve quickly, and the hot pickling liquid will allow the eggs and beets to pickle quicker.
Frequently asked questions
I like to serve these as a fun appetizer or snack over Easter. The kids love the bright colors! You can also use them to top simple salads or how about making colorful deviled eggs with them?!
These pickled eggs will keep for up to 3 months in the jar in the fridge but they are ready to eat within 24 hours.
Pickling is a way to preserve the eggs for a longer shelf life, so there should be no need to freeze them. Egg yolks can be frozen, but egg whites will become tough and inedible.

How much pickling spices do I add to the rosy pickled egg recipe
Hi Brenda, this recipe does not use pickling spice, just water, vinegar, sugar, salt, beets, and eggs. You can find the recipe with the complete measurements on the recipe card at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
If you use fresh beets how would you cook them to get it ready
Great question. You can roast or boil raw ones before using them. Here’s a simple tutorial on how to cook raw beets.
This is the most perfect pickled beet egg recipe ever. I tripled the recipe and made 3 jars of them, along with one jar of spicy jalapeño habanero Szechuan pickled eggs. I am intolerant to eggs, but I enjoy making them for my husband and family. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! 🙂
Thank you so much! That sounds incredible! Hope everyone is enjoying!
Great pickle egg recipe. I make them all the time now.
Thank you so much! I love that!!
I have quick pickled beets in my fridge. Could I use the beets and liquid for pickling the eggs?
I have yet to try that, but it should work!
The eggs dark pink to the yolk. There should be no white on the eggs.
You can do that too!
Can’t wait to try these. I’ll update soon

Made these yesterday. Cooked my eggs and fresh beets in the instant pot. Used Splenda in place of the sugar and added sliced red onions, as well. Delicious. Will do this again soon. Thanks for your great ideas!

Easy, quick and fun to make.
