Posted by: Richard in Cincy at 2:04 pm on Oct 26, 2018
12 large eggs (hard boiled & peeled)
12 cloves of garlic peeled and lightly crushed
4 cups white vinegar
1 cup water
2 tbls of sugar
2 tsp course sea salt
1 tbs Penzey's pickling spice
1 tsp crushed red chili flakes
Sterilize a large mouth jar that will hold the eggs and brine. Carefully pack eggs into jar layering the garlic as you pack them in.
In a pot combine the vinegar, water, salt, sugar, chili flakes, and pickling spice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Pour brine over eggs.
Place lid on jar and let cool. Store in the refrigerator for 1 week to develop the flavor. Very tasty with cheese, sliced sausage, crusty bread and crackers with a glass of wine or beer.
