Now comes the hard part.

I have been wanting to make some pickle eggs for eons. So last night my son ate his last sour pickle from the gallon jug and brought the clean jug to me. I have six eggs sitting in the brine right now. Now comes the hard part. According to the recipe I have to wait seven days for the eggs to get pickled.

I think I need to get pickled.

Nah, you can get pickled if you want, but three days is long enough for the eggs. I did some with Pepperoncini pepper brine and they turned out great too.

I've only ever used pickled beet juice and it only takes 2-3 days.

If you enjoy a little spice try pickling a package of Lil' Smokeis in your hot pepper brine for 2 or 3 days. You can also add a tablespoon of hot pepper flakes to a standard pickle brine. Nice for a tailgate party.

Remember those jars of pickled kielbasa on the back bar next to the pickled eggs, same idea!

This sounds intriguing! Thanks AB!

I was reading a recipe for pickled eggs the other day. It gave a general recipe for the spices. One thing that stood out was that when you place the eggs into the jar crack them before you add the pickling ingredients.Have no idea why. They should be ready in 2 days.

I always peel the boiled eggs before I put them into the jar.

Oh yes! Unpeeled eggs don't work, IMHO.
