It looks like you had carrots with the eggs, but no carrots are being listed in the ingredients. Love pickled carrots. Please advise. Thank you
Hi Grace, you can just add some carrots. Peel and cut them into thin finger size or sliced. However you like and add them with the eggs!
Are my eyes deceiving me? Are there also thin slices of carrots layered in along with the eggs and onions?
Uncle Norbert's Nephewsays:
The recipe states “optional add chili flakes to taste as in photo.” How do I know how the picture tastes?
Growing up in the Midwest, we had picked beets and eggs. The eggs turn this gorgeous shade of purple and they are delicious. I’m guessing the flavors are much the same as above but really pretty with the added color. I still make them often, especially in the summer.
That sounds really pretty Phyllis, and I can imagine they would be great for a picnic too, and also would look nice on a lovely salad plate. What a wonderful idea!
