  3. Peel the skin from the beets and slice into 1/4 inch slices.

  4. To make the brine combine the apple cider vinegar, water, honey, kosher salt, ground mustard, and peppercorns. Bring to a boil and then pour over the beets.

  5. Allow to cool to room temperature and then cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours.

  8. Bring 1 quart of water to a boil and add a pinch of salt. In a medium bowl prepare an ice bath of 50/50 cold water and ice cubes.

  9. Place the green beans in the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes, IMMEDIATELY remove the beans from the boiling water and place directly in the ice bath. Once cooled remove the beans from the ice bath and dry slightly. Add to the cooled brine, cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.


  11. Place eggs in a small saucepot, cover with cold water and place on a burner over high heat. Once the eggs have come to a rapid boil turn off the heat and cover. Allow the eggs to sit there for exactly 12 minutes.

  12. In the meantime prepare an ice bath of 50/50 cold water and ice cubes. Place eggs directly into the ice bath, once they are cool enough to touch peel them while they are still warm.
