Yes, you can use Splenda and fresh beets.

can you use fresh beets instead?

This is a "quick" recipe. If you want to use fresh beets, get directions from your canning books!

Can you use splenda in these beets?

I am sure you could substitute the sugar with Splenda. However, we have not tried it in our Test Kitchen so we can not guarantee the results. Good luck and enjoy!

thank you! my daughter loves pickled eggs. i used to have a wonderful easy recipe to make pickled eggs in the microwave, but have lost that recipe over the years.

can you add hard boiled eggs to this to make pickled eggs?

I am sure you could but if using in that manner you should not drain the beets as you want the beet liquid to color the eggs. I would also suggest doubling the ingredients as that amount of liquid would not submerge very many eggs.
