This was a Sunday Evening effort long waited for."PICKLED EGGS"

Here's hoping that the video  will work , if not just picture the pot boiling with a dozen eggs in it  :o)

Here is my pot of spices boiling.. and the recipe:
1 cup of white vinegar, 1 Cup of Pickling spices, 5 garlic cloves sliced,
1 cup of Brown sugar and one Jalapeno pepper (seeds removed).
I'll add the spice mixture into the jar (once it cools) where I have layered the  Eggs, onions, and beets ( to give the eggs a purple color :o). I won't be able to taste the "Pickled Eggs" for at least a week.. I think the longer it sits ( in the fridge) the better it gets :o)
All the Spices added to the Jar..Now the most important part "WAIT". ugh! I may have to sneak a taste. I've had this on my mind to do for quite a while, and today was the perfect day for it...I had bought extra eggs not realizing I already had a dozen tucked in the bottom tray :o).

Please, please, please send the recipe. We'd love to try making them ourselves.

Mrs Pickles, glad to see you not knocking something you haven't tried. :o) you might like them..

the only thing I didn't mention on the blog was the water from the canned beets about a cup that I added instead of a cup of water. I didn't have any fresh beets to slice.
