  • 10-12  pcs chicken eggs
  • 250 ml white vinegar
  • 1 pc beets
  • 250 ml water
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2  tsp spices for the marinade
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Hard boil the eggs, chill, and peel. Place in a sterile liter jar and start preparing the marinade.
  • For the marinade, mix the vinegar, water, sugar, salt, and marinade spices in a small saucepan. In a saucepan, clean the beets and three on a coarse grater. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently, until the sugar dissolves, then cover the pan and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Strain the finished marinade through a sieve or cheesecloth (if desired, but more often it is not recommended to do this), and then, while still hot, pour the boiled and peeled eggs in a jar. Close the jar tightly with a sterile lid and let it cool before sending it to the refrigerator for holding.
  • Before serving, s should marinate eggs for at least two days, but it is better to increase this period to 2-3 weeks to be thoroughly saturated with the aroma and flavors of the marinade. Serve with salt, pepper, chips, croutons, and an excellent cold light beer.


  • The spice mixture for the marinade can be bought in the market in the corresponding department or on the market, but you can (and should) prepare it yourself. There are many such mixtures.
  • Here is one of them: 1 tsp black peppercorns, ten cloves buds, one bay leaf, two small dried chili peppers. It is not necessary to grind the spices, but to cook as a whole and not strain. Furthermore, at your discretion, you can add a couple of cloves of garlic, 6-8 allspice peas, 2 tsp to the mixture: mustard seeds, 2 tsp dill seeds, ground ginger, cinnamon stick, and any other spices.
  • You can add white onions to the egg marinade, adding a spicy taste to the eggs.
