Room temperature pickled eggs?
I have read that your supposed to keep pickled eggs refrigerated and not to keep them out to room temperature for longer than 2 hours upon serving.
Yet many places keep them at room temperature for example bars & conveinence stores.
I myself have bought jars of pickled eggs from Sam's club that are not refrigerated and keep them for months at room temperature eating some every now and then.
The ingredients in these are eggs,vinegar,water,salt,fd & c red #40,fd & c blue #1,beet vegetable powder,sodium benzoate, & potassium sorbate.
What or is there a safe way to pickle and store eggs at room temperature at home?
Do the preservative's sodium benzoate & potassium sorbate in the eggs I purchased help the eggs to keep longer or play a hand in the eggs keeping at room temperature?
