Pickled eggs are great served whole or in slices. They're perfect for salads and appetizer trays. The longer the eggs stand before serving, the stronger the vinegar flavor will be.

I like picked eggs but these are super sour (this is coming from a vinegar lover)! I was trying to find a recipe that tastes like store-bought picked eggs, this isn't it.

The recipe has far to much vinegar. When I was making the recipe I was surprised the eggs did not want to separate

I really liked this recipe and gave it to my brother who likes to deer hunt with his friends to take with them when hunting. I like the idea of keeping eggs when my yard chicken in the spring over abundance of eggs I used it in chicken salad, tuna salad, egg salad, and potato salad. I like the tart taste they give to the salads. Thanks
