I like my pickled eggs in beet juice. What could I use to make some green? I want red and green ones for Christmas. Maybe use Farmer Jon's recipe and just add food coloring!

It probably depends on how the food coloring likes acid--but easter egg coloring uses vinegar to color the shells of eggs--just a thought.
Whatever you use, if natural it would need to stay green in an acid solution, so if Heinz could make Green Ketchup, with spinach, maybe spinach would work?



Sprinkle chlorella, spirulina, or a more suitably flavored green product into the recipe. Might I recommend parsley, especially stale, finely ground parsley?

Good luck, I'd like to see how they worked out for you!

Since most pickling is done in vinegar, I would say green food coloring would work.

I agree with the others, try some green food coloring in the pickling liquid, if it doesn't work try these colored deviled eggs.

Those *are* made with food coloring. I made them for a Master Gardener lunch. Everyone loved the fun colors
