PICKLED EGGS...2


Place as many eggs as you wish to pickle in a heavy
saucepan and cover with cold water. Salt the water
heavily,
this will make the shells remove easily. Bring to a
hard boil.
Reduce heat to maintain a slow boil and cook eggs for
15
minutes. Cool under cold running water. Remove
shells care-
fully, do not use any eggs that are broken open, this
will
discolor brine. Dry eggs on paper toweling. Place eggs
in
jar. In stainless steel saucepan, place 3/4 cup white
vinegar
and 1/4 cup water.
For each quart of vinegar mixture, add one small red
pepper (dried), 1 clove garlic, 4 peppercorns and 2
whole
cloves. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5
minutes.
Let cool at room temperature. Pour over eggs and
cover
tightly. The eggs, as they pickle, will produce a strong
odor.
Open once a day the first week to let fumes escape.
After
first week or so this odor will disappear and they will
have a most delectable pickled aroma.
