    Boiled eggs..yes, my peeling totally stinks!!!...placed in a jar with a mixture of boiled apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper and a pinch of garlic. What I read was that these need to sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks before you even try one and then they will "keep" in the frig for 3 - 4 months. Looking forward to trying one in a couple weeks!!!

    That must be the spices pressed up against the glass in the jar..the pepper likely...just in case you wondered, lol!

    I personally have never eaten one, my husband loves them though so he will wait impatiently for them!! He wanted beet juice in them to make them red but I won that protest, lol!! I nearly every Mom and Pop gas station in the south there is are 3 big jars on the counter by the register..one has the most enormous pickles you have ever seen, one has pickled eggs and one has pickled pigs feet..no way am I eating those!!! [​IMG] Soooo, I do hope these are good, I'll let you know!! [​IMG]

    I've never eaten one either but would love to try it. I'm anxious to hear what you think. If you like them I'll be brave and give it a whirl too. [​IMG]

    beet juice is a MUST! I have been thinking about making pickled eggs soon.. but I will have to buy eggs. no one is laying and from what I hear you cannot successfully peel fresh eggs. (I tried it once and wasted a dozen eggs)

    The secret to peeling eggs ... From the QUEEN of SOUTHERN COOKING PAULA DEEN is... SALT!!!! She says to use 1/4-1/3 cup of salt and I do that to boil 5-6 eggs FRESH ones and they peel great... You know it must be true if Paula does it !!! It really does work and does not change the taste of the eggs(yoiu cannot taste the salt) Try it ... Salt is cheap...
