Miniature hard-boiled quail eggs are a fun one-bite cocktail party snack, especially when pickled and stained pink by grated beet. Simply make a quick pickling brine by boiling water, vinegar, sugar, salt, spices, and grated beet; cool; and pour over peeled, hard-boiled quail eggs. After a short 24-hour pickling time, the eggs will be ready for your next party. Try this make-ahead appetizer sprinkled with some fancy finishing salt.
Special equipment: You will need a glass pint jar with a tightfitting lid for this recipe.
