365 Project #144 Pickled Quail Eggs

Don loves pickled quail eggs, so occasionally we buy a jar. They're pretty expensive, so it's a rare treat. We have friends who got more quail eggs than they needed, so they gave the remainder to us!  I decided to pickle them with beets, for added flavor and that beautiful pink color.

This recipe seemed to be closest to what I wanted and resulted in almost 2 dozen pickled quail eggs. I love pickled beets and decided to include them instead of straining them out. With lots of leftover liquid and beets, I hardboiled and pickled 10 chicken eggs, too.

The quail eggs should be ready in about 3-4 days and chicken eggs in about a week. We can hardly wait!
