I made these when I had my pub, and they were always a hit. I made them in large batches because of the standing time, but have scaled the recipe for home use.
Eggs are dairy food, they are not "Vegan" - 06 Nov 2012
I made a few changes in this recipe which I think helped it a lot, and will make some more the next time I make it. I used cider vinegar instead of plain distilled, which made the eggs a nice light "tea" color. I also added about 2 teaspoons of salt and about 1/4 cup of sugar. Next time I'm going to increase the sugar to about 1/2 cup, will leave out the bay leaf (there's plenty of that in the pickling spice) and maybe add another clove or two of garlic. A good first effort for me at pickled eggs, and I'm enjoying them (hubby and daughter won't even get close!) :o)! - 19 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Rave reviews from the Tudor feast I did this for, for 60 people. As I forgot to pick up the Pickling spices at Penseys, I made up my own using the same usual ingredients. Packed it in a huge mason jar, sealed it and left in the cold garage for a week. And because I am lazy, I used the minced garlic in a jar (the wet stuff from the produce section) Worked excellent! I will definitely use this recipe again! - 11 Jan 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
