You need to add the vinegar cold but boil the spices in it first, unless it's spiced vinegar.
I have never put a pickled anything in the fridge,
Don't add garlic. The taste is good but it makes them sticky and the eggs break up when you try and get them out of the jar. It might not if you boil the garlic, I chopped it and added it raw
Yes, sounds right. People have become bit obsessed with sterilizing and fridges but pickling preserved things for years before fridges were invented.
Hello , my Dad use to do pickled eggs , he would just use white vinegar or sometimes ordinary vinegar but the brown does colour the eggs
he never used spices but why not ! And they where not kept in the Fridge
you must have your own chickens , best of luck
they used to be stuck on a shelf at the back of the bar when i used to go in pubs no fridges there ! thats why they pickeled them in vinegar enjoy .
I had a pickled egg once, I think they must be an acquired taste I would love to be able to make them though even if I didn't eat them.......I've got chicken envy LOL
I love pickled eggs Aldi/Lidl have them on specical offer sometimes
