How to Make Homemade Pickled Eggs

June 30, 2014

Your picnic is not complete without that briny bite of something pickled. Pickled eggs are incredibly easy to make, and they are certainly addictive. They are an interesting recipe. It seems as if there should be more to it, but the most important ingredient is time. 

Try making a single jar of these delicious bites, and serve them in quarters on a tray of cheese, crackers and fruit. Nibble away with a nice glass of your favorite wine, and watch the summer sun go down. Now, you are enjoying the best time of year in style.

These are salty, flavorful, intense and worth every bit of effort to peel the eggs. Serve each egg sliced or halved, and enjoy the taste. They are  amazing! 

For this recipe, place 12 eggs into enough cold water to just cover. Bring to a boil and then turn off heat. Let cook for 12 minutes. Strain and cool in cold water so you can peel them easily.

Peel eggs and place them in a quart canning jar. In a saucepan, combine the following:

2 c. vinegar

1 c. water

11/2  tsp. salt

1 Tbsp pickling spices (I made my own using cloves,mustard seed, dill seed, cinnamon sticks, celery seed and bay leaves)

Sliced onion 

Bring to a boil and then pour over the eggs. 

Cap and let cool on counter top. Then refrigerate for 3 days at least, before trying.
