I used a handful of onions and garlic from this batch in the crockpot this week for chicken stew. I’m going to use the beets for this, although it looks horrific to me — it was requested. Anyone ever eat pickled beets and eggs?

    I have always loved pickled beets. Not sure about the eggs.

  2. I don’t like pickled beets but borsch is delicious. I also grate them, put a little water, vinegar and sugar over them to eat as a salad. Fresh dill over this works too. The best thing to do with them is try different recipes. They are good, but it depends on what you do with them.

    Kelli;
    Your Daddy LOVES pickled eggs and beets. Grandma Max used to make
    these every single Easter Sunday. She would save the juice from the
    beets (if she used canned beets) and re-pickle the eggs several times.
    Dad and I just talked about this, remembering her on Easter, funny that
    you should want to make these.
    Good luck, should be a slam dunk. And YES, they are DELICIOUS.

  5. Pickled beets are a Pennsylvania Dutch staple. I love them!
