The Inside of a Pickled Egg

It's been four days since I pickled some eggs with beets. Time to cut into one of the eggs and see how it looks and tastes!  We were excited to see that the dark pink from the beet juice made it all the way inside the egg white to the yolk.

Pickled Eggs with Beets

The texture of the egg surpised me the most. As soon as I removed the egg from the jar, I noticed how firm the egg had become.  It also felt heavier from having soaked up some of the beet juice.

The flavor of the egg has changed to take on a mild, sweet pickle taste.  Interestingly, the beets now taste a little bit like egg.  Overall, it was a very pleasant experience, and my daughter and I both enjoyed eating one of the eggs and several of the beets from the jar.
