Spicy Pickled Eggs

Spicy, tangy, and hearty, pickled eggs may seem like they’re out of your mother’s 1980’s Legion cookbook, but keep an open mind. They may very well be found in that Legion cookbook, but they’re a tasty old bar staple that have been around for centuries prior for a reason.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place eggs in a large saucepan and fill about two-thirds full with cold water. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and cover for 9 minutes. With a slotted spoon, immediately scoop eggs out and place them in an ice water bath. Allow to sit for 15 minutes. Gently tap the eggs on a hard surface for easy peeling.
  2. Place peeled eggs in a quart-size mason jar.
  3. In medium saucepan, combine remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Turn off heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Pour just-cooled brine over eggs.
  5. Refrigerate for at least one week before eating. The longer the better!

Notes

Refrigerate for at least one week before eating. The longer the better!
