This Spicy Pickled Eggs Recipe makes eggs that taste just like the eggs the general stores used to sell!
Pickling eggs is really easy. In fact the hardest thing is peeling the eggs. So if you can peel an egg you can pickle eggs!
My mother used to make these quite often (they tended to disappear) and there was almost always a big jar of them in the refrigerator.
I never had her recipe, and have been searching for years to find one that seemed to be closest to hers. This one is just perfect.
Mom also would use vegetable coloring and make some red and some green for Christmas – I have done this and it created a sensation!
These pickled eggs will keep in the refrigerator for weeks, in theory.
In reality, if you love pickled eggs as much as I do, these will disappear a lot quicker than that.
Spicy Pickled Eggs Recipe
- 12 hard-boiled eggs peeled
- 1 large empty sterilized glass jar
- 4 cups apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 medium onions chopped
- 6 garlic cloves
- 2 Jalapeno Peppers cut into slices
- 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
- 1 ⁄3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon pickling spices
Put the peeled hard boiled eggs and place in the large jar.
Boil the remaining ingredients together for 5 minutes.
Pour over the eggs in the jar. Cover; leave on counter overnight.
Add some beet juice or sliced beets to get a pretty color & another layer of flavor. For a different color, try adding turmeric. Will result in shades from green-yellow thru warm orange-yellow, depending on other spices.
