  1. What a splash of colour
    Are your canned beets already pickled? here in the UK most preserved beetroot is sold by the jar already pickled. I can’t think I’ve ever seen it by the can, just raw, precooked as a salad item or bottled in vinegar

  3. I really enjoy the trips to this blog. Your photos are spectacular, and your ability to title the photos is absolutely amazing. I hope you are having a fantastic Easter.

  4. Stevo: I make red beet eggs all year round, too (usually by request). They are nice and colorful, that’s for sure. 🙂

    Uphilldowndale: You can buy tinned beets here that are cooked and packed in water. We also have the fresh or pickled. This recipe can be made with fresh beets (boil and slice them, and add some of the cooking water to the vinegar & sugar mix). I’ve never tried it with pickled beets, but imagine that would work as well.

    Bookbabie: They’re a Lancaster County, Pennsylvania dish. The first time I saw them I didn’t think I’d like them. Too freaky looking. 😉 I was wrong. I like them very much.

    Jeni: Thank you. I hope you had a fantastic Easter, too. 🙂

  5. We never had a problem using up our hard boiled eggs. There were nine of us in the family and my mom used a lot of them for potato salad on Easter Sunday. We took them to school for lunch afterwards. They were all gone within a couple of days, tops.

  6. Corina: When I was growing up, we never had that problem either. There were seven of us (5 children, 2 parents) in my family, plus assorted people (aunts, uncles, grandmothers) who would come and stay for a while. Leftovers of anything were rarely a problem.

    My mom made potato salad on Easter Sunday, too. What didn’t go into the salad was usually turned into deviled eggs or egg salad. Mom was big on those mayo-based dishes.

  7. I grew up in Lancaster County, but now I live in NC. I don’t think I’ve seen fresh beets in the stores around here. I guess I’ll have to settle for the canned variety. All my friends think I grew up Amish due to my PA dutch taste buds. Everyone reading this must try Woopie Pies (named this long before Woopie Goldberg) and Shoo Fly Pie. Yummmmmmm!

    Thanks for the recipe, I think I’ll tweek it a bit.

  8. Shoo Fly Pie is the best!

    Enjoy the eggs, Brad. 🙂 I don’t think it matters if the beets are fresh or canned. You’d have to cook the fresh beets anyhow. The only real difference might be less sodium.
