Spicy Pickled Eggs Recipe

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.

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.
