Go Get This Stuff
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled

  1. If dying half eggs, slice eggs in half, lengthwise. Scoop out egg yolk using a teaspoon and set aside for later use.
  2. Place eggs in a non-reactive bowl or container. A large zip-lock freezer bag may be used as a last resort. (Beet juice may stain certain plastic containers.)
  3. Pour beets and the juice into container assuring that eggs are completely submerged in the liquid.
  4. Cover and place eggs in the refrigerator and allow to soak.
  5. Half eggs should soak for several hours or overnight. Whole eggs will need 24 to 48 hours depending upon your desired color intensity.
