I have a huge jar and changed it up a bit but I love this as a base. I make it with 3 cups vinegar, 1 1/2 water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tbsp salt, 1 lg onion (rings), 1 garlic bulb peeled, 3 bay leafs. I put 3 cloves in jar and the rest in the vinegar mixture when cooking. Everyone loves my eggs!! Even my 3 year old :P


Excellent recipe! I've been eating pickled eggs since I was a kid, and have tried many recipes. I don't normally add sugar to mine, but thought what the heck, why not! I try not to deviate from recipes when I first make them in order to truly evaluate them properly. I took the recipe submitter's suggestion and added in slices of fresh jalapeƱo (about half a pepper). At first I thought they would turn out too spicy, but when I tried them the next day, there was no heat at all. Next time I'll just use the whole pepper, sliced. I'll definitely make these again!


I add 1/4 jar dill pickle juice, just adds a little flavour!
