Mom's Pickled Eggs 1

Family recipes are very treasured keepsakes. They bring back many fond memories of Moms, Grandmas, and Aunties. My husband’s Mom left him with some very fond memories through the many recipes she made with a lot of love. I was not fortunate enough to have met my mother-in-law as she had passed away before I met my husband, but through stories shared by my sister-in-law, husband, and father-in-law I have gotten to know and love her. This recipe for pickled eggs is one my husband raves about all the time, so it was time to give it a try. They were amazing, with a great pickled zing. The only mistake I made was not making more!

      Thanks for perfect recipe. Probably is possible put in a jar hot peeled eggs, cover with hot brine and put on twist or any sealable lid. PUT THE HOT JAR UPSIDE DOWN, wait bis cooled and (my opinion) must be durable min. 1 year by good storable conditions (cold, dry, dark).

      This is from the National Center for Home Food Preservation…
      “Aftter making the eggs, the eggs require some time to season (i.e., pick up the flavors from the pickling brine). Keep them refrigerated at all times. If small eggs are used, 1 to 2 weeks are usually allowed for seasoning to occur. Medium or large eggs may require 2 to 4 weeks to become well seasoned. Use the eggs within 3 to 4 months for best quality.”

    I would use apple cider vinegar, and add garlic and dill just for a little change and extra boost in healthy benefits.
