Beetroot And Lovage Pickled Eggs. Hello friends, fancy making some Beetroot And Lovage Pickled Eggs?

(Updated post. First published here 3rd December 2016).

Eggs genuinely are one of the most nutrient-dense food that we can eat as a human. Few things rival this perfect food source.

So long as you’re eating a healthy diet, avoiding processed food and table-salt, eating eggs will not add to your cholesterol. I’m aware that this contradicts most people’s view, but it’s absolutely true.

The more eggs we can eat the better. They’re high in protein and packed with myriad vitamins and minerals like B6, B12, A, D, E, K zinc, iron, copper, and other essential fatty acids and omega oils.

Beetroot And Lovage Pickled Eggs

How To Make Beetroot And Lovage Pickled Eggs:


  • 12 medium free range eggs at room temperature
  • 500g distilled malt picking vinegar
  • 3 medium beetroots, grated (retaining as much purple juice as possible)
  • 6 medium-sized fresh lovage leaves

How To Make Beetroot And Lovage Pickled Eggs:

  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil (the pan needs to fit the 12 eggs in, with plenty of additional water so the temperature doesn’t drop too much when the eggs are added).
  2. Ensure the water is rapidly boiling. Gently add all the eggs and cook for precisely 6 minutes and 30 seconds. Immediately discard the boiling water and run the eggs under cold water for 5 minutes. Allow them to sit for a further 5 in the pan of cold water.
  3. Add the vinegar and grated beetroot to a saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil. Immediately remove from the heat and allow to cool for a little while. When the vinegar is still warm (but not boiling) add half of the fresh lovage and allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Put the eggs in a sterilized Kilner, along with the remaining fresh lovage. Strain the vinegar into a new jug to remove the grated beetroot and lovage leaves. Pour the liquid over the eggs and seal. Leave for a minimum of 4 days for the colour and vinegar to permeate through the eggs. The longer the eggs are left in the pickle, the deeper their colour will become.

    What an eye catching colour and lovely flavour I bet. I like the idea of storing eggs this way, but I never know what to serve them with. #MMBC
