“Pickled eggs are popular fare for pub-goers and low-carbers. Eggs used for pickling should have clean, sound shells. Small or medium eggs are usually a good choice for pickling so the seasoning can penetrate deeply into the egg. Fresh eggs are the best to use for pickling to ensure the highest quality possible since the eggs will be stored over a relatively long period of time. However, eggs at least a few days old will peel better after boiling.This is a refrigerator pickle only and are good for months properly refrigerated (if they last that long). ;-) Courtesy of”
