Pickled Eggs

In an effort to clean out my magazines and cookbooklets, I've decided to join Magazine Mondays hosted by Cream Puffs in Venice. What I really like is that she isn't strict about when you post so I can publish these yummy results as I find them.

I used to make these for our VFW and they were a favorite!

PICKLED EGGS
1 dozen JUMBO eggs
1 1/2 cups vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 onion, sliced into thin rings
1 whole dried chile pepper
  • Hard boil the eggs.
  • Drain and fill with cold water. Allow eggs to sit in cold water for 20 minutes.
  • Peel the eggs and place in a glass jar, alternating with the onion rings. Add the red pepper.
  • In a medium saucepan combine the vinegar, water, sugar, salt and cloves. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer 5 minutes.
  • Pour the hot vinegar solution over the eggs. Cover tightly and let stand in refrigerator for several days before serving.

My husband loves pickled eggs! I make mine with beets and beet juice...he likes the purple colors! This is a great recipe!

I sometimes use that recipe too - especially around Easter.

I make pickled eggs for my husband. I just put the boiled eggs in my leftover pickle juice and add jalapenos to spice it up a bit. Sounds wonderful this way too. Can't wait to try it!

I'll have to try that - we always have left over pickle juice at our house.
