purple pickled eggs


When I saw this on my foodie friends blog I knew instantly that I needed to try it. Thanks Stace. Deviled eggs kicked up major notches - seriously who doesnt like a frou-frou deviled egg and then its pink! I am going to do these again for the guests at Thanksgiving and I might even use a piping bag but for this first run I simply spooned.



For my next attempt I am going to get a little more creative and try and get a purple spider web effect.



These guys were boiled in the normal way then dropped whole and peeled into the beet juice, then the yolks were removed and I dropped the halves in the liquid for a second time. I think they look pretty cool.

They make a contraption that will actually make your hardboiled eggs square.I'm going to purchase it soon just for kicks then use the beet juice to make them purple.OO so exciting.

You need to seriously warn us when your colors are so odd. I thought my eyes were malfunctioning.
