Guess I'll be sleeping on the couch tonight! We like the "Growing and Canning your Own Food" by Jackie Clay which we ordered from the Backwoods Home magazine. The standard canning books like Ball's Blue Book doesn't include recipes for pickled eggs. Now we did add garlic and Habanero peppers to the pickling spices. We were getting more than 18 eggs a day and the Missus quilt club members could only buy so many. So these are pickled for the lean times, or when I start getting a hankering for them--- a Jar of these and a sixpack guarantees me a datenight with the couch---but I can't resist.
