“After a good deal of tweaking, I finally came up with a brine for hot pickled eggs where I don't have to allocate precious jar space to lots of pepper rings.”
24 eggs

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place hard boiled and peeled eggs into a large sterilized glass jar.
  2. In large saucepan, combine vinegar, water, chili sauce, garlic cloves, red pepper flakes and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Pour brine over eggs in the glass jar. Seal with lid. Let cool to room temperature and then transfer to the refrigerator and let pickle for at least 10 days (2 weeks is better), stirring once daily.
  4. If you have a large enough jar, you can use 3 dozen eggs instead of 2. There is plenty of brine for it.
