Pickled eggs are peeled hard boiled eggs that are marinated for several days before serving. Pickled eggs are served as a garnish, appetizer or side dish by some families on Easter Sunday. While there are a variety of different recipes for pickled eggs, all recipes include the key ingredients of eggs, salt, water and vinegar for pickling. Many recipes also include additional ingredients such as beets.
Run the eggs under cold water and peel the shell from the eggs.
Combine 3 cups cider vinegar, 1 1/2 cup water and 1 1/2 tsp salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. For additional flavour, add 1/2 cup granulated sugar (optional) and 1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns (optional).
Pour the vinegar mixture over the eggs in the jar and let cool.
Seal the jar and refrigerate for two days before serving.
