Pickled Eggs?



Yes, pickled eggs!  Those who have the memory of growing up with them cherish each bite.  Most who have never had one (or heard of them) generally turn up the nose and sneer.  They are delicious. 

Typical tavern fare of yesteryear I challenge you to re-encounter or discover them.  There are many ways to flavor them, here you’ll find a spicier version which permeates throughout the egg itself.

  • 1 dozen hardboiled, peeled eggs
  • 1 quart of cider vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons pickling spices (buy them in the spice section of your grocery store)

Into a pot, pour the vinegar then add salt and cayenne pepper.  Stir the mixture until it comes to a boil.  Into a well-cleaned glass jar, put in the pickling spices.  Pour the boiling vinegar into the jar.  Let the mixture stand until completely cooled.  Add the hardboiled eggs.  Cover the jar, place into the refrigerator for one week before eating.  Serve cold or room temperature.  Delicious!
