Pickled Eggs

So many people are kind of weirded out when you mention pickled eggs!

Simply, they are hard boiled eggs that are cured in a vinegar brine with some added flavors and seasoning. Years ago, you could find pickled eggs as a snack popular in pubs, bars and taverns, in places where beer is served. It's a pretty healthy snack with your beer, I must say.

I like them in my work lunch, no beer, but hey, it's a wonderful taste treat!

Makes 8-10

3/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup water
2-4 Tbsp sugar (optional)
1 tsp salt
bay leaf
Whole dried red peppers, red pepper flakes or slices of fresh jalapeno (optional)

Make the brine in saucepan over medium heat. Cool.  Pour over peeled, hard cooked eggs.
Recipe for perfect hard boiled eggs is here.
Add to a jar with a tight fitting lid.
Keep chilled in the fridge.  These last a long time... and I think they taste best in the 2-4 week range, if they last that long.
