This recipe uses quick pickled beets to turn the hard-boiled eggs a beautiful shade of magenta, be sure to enjoy and share the pickled beets, too!
Mix 1 cup vinegar, 3 cups water, 1 Tbsp. sugar, 2 tsp. salt, and sliced beet in a 2 quart pot. Bring mixture to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
While the beets are cooking in the vinegar solution, place peeled hard-boiled eggs into a large bowl or two quart sized mason jars.
With a slotted spoon, remove beets from the vinegar solution. Pour the remaining beet brine into the containers of eggs. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours, rotating the eggs occasionally to ensure even coloration.
Once eggs are sufficiently dyed, remove from beet juice and slice each egg in half lengthwise. Remove and transfer yolks to a medium bowl.
Add 2 Tbsp. Kelp Pickle brine, 1 tsp. vinegar, and ¼ cup mayonnaise to the egg yolks. Season to taste with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Mix until a smooth fluffy consistency is reached.
Spoon seasoned egg yolks back into the egg whites.
Garnish with Kelp Pickles and sprinkle with Kelp Pinch.
