Does anyone have a recipe for pickled eggs? Not the ones with beet juice, but just plain pickled ones. Thanks in advance, 'cause I know you will help me!! Mona Lea in S.E.Missouri

I used to just soak hard boiled shelled eggs in leftover pickle juice with perhaps some garlic in it.

I have a recipe that we like. It makes 18 eggs, but you can make less or more to suit you.

18 eggs,hard boiled, peeled, and holes poked in them with a toothpick

white vinegar

6 or 7 whole cloves of garlic

2 hot peppers, whole

2 tsp. plain salt (not iodized)

Place half the eggs in a large jar. Add peppers, salt, and garlic. Add other half of eggs. Pour in enough vinegar to cover. Put lid on jar. Shake jar to distribute ingredients a bit. Refrigerate at least one week, shaking every day or two, if you think of it- not crucial. Will keep many weeks, if kept refrigerated.

I make pickled eggs for the bar I work at,and they sell real well.

Layer boiled eggs with slices of onion. Cover with white vinegar. Add bay leaves,caraway and some red peppers if desired. Let sit for a week.
