I am enjoying a dish of pickled beets, eggs and onions. I don't make this too much because dh doesn't eat them. I usually get them at family get togethers. So I had to look up a recipe. I was amazed to not find it in my 13th edition of Fanny Farmer. So I went on line. I was further amazed to see that not all pickled eggs are purple, i.e., they do not involve beets. Sacrilage! They must be purple and vinegery. I like to pickle onions with them. There has been a minor revolt at the independent living facility where my mother is over the pickled eggs. As she ststed it: "They're not pickled, they're just pink. They didn't use vineger! Are pickled beets and eggs a German heritage thing? So how do you like your pickled eggs?
