Beet Pickled Deviled Eggs

I made these over the Holidays.  I could not resist the bright colors, and the pickling gives the eggs a lovely tangy flavor.  I over pickled this batch.  It is best if you only leave the eggs to pickle overnight, instead of the entire week I gave this batch.  You live, you learn, and if I’m lucky I might eventually get it right.
