  1. Place egg in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, and peel. Place eggs in a glass or plastic container.
  2. In a saucepan, combine beets, vinegar, sugar, water and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, and stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour over eggs. Cover, and chill for 4 hours or overnight.

  • This might stain a plastic container, but don't pickle the eggs in a metal container, or they will become slimy.

These are the best I have ever eaten. My husband loved them. Thanks!
