Lemon Vinegar Pickled Eggs

Lemon Vinegar Pickled Eggs – a bit of a sweet Tang! My family LOVES these.

We all know about Pickled Red Beet Eggs and they are great too, this easy recipe is another option.

Use in a salad sliced or just salt and pepper, to taste and eat alone-either way they are delicious!

In a pot of boiling water add 12 whole (one dozen ) Large eggs, boil for 10 minutes on high heat. Remove pot from heat and run COLD water in the pot for several minutes; allow eggs to sit in cold water several minutes (will make peeling them super easy).

Crack and peel eggs and discard egg shells. In a microwave safe bowl add 1/4 cup white (distilled) vinegar, 2 whole lemons for zests and juices, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, one tablespoon peppercorns, 4 tablespoons tepid water and microwave (covered) one minute. Remove from microwave and stir ingredients, add 2 more tablespoons of water and stir again.

Using 3 sterilized Mason jars (lids and seals) add 4 eggs in the three (3) jars, shake or whisk microwave pickling juice and divide among the 3 Mason jars. Allow to cool and Refrigerate.

In my house I’ll make these early in the morning by night time 1-2 jars just disappear?!

I hope you’ll enjoy these as much as we do! In closing I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.

Happy New Year!

  1. I’ve never tried to pickle eggs Cuz, but this recipe looks so good I think I’ll have to rectify that ASAP. Love pickled everything else, so why not eggs? Never tried pickled bologna yet either, not that sure I want to, pigs feet ditto. I’m at adventurous eater, but I also know where pigs put those feet and no amount of scrubbing will clean them up enough for me to want to eat where they’ve been. Hugs and smiles. Angie

      • Gee they left in the middle of the night Suzanne? The house was warm because of temperatures? Yes housekeeping takes time to thoroughly do I know. My Dad sends 2 of his best housekeepers from the Motels to my home each week to do my heavy cleaning, my home is 6,000 sq.ft. Fortunately the gang is still in Orlando so I am able to get a lot of computer work done on web sites, I added new people on we graze together and wrote 4 new recipes for TK, 3 for The Wiser Cook, 2 for All things Citrus too. So it has been great to post ahead for January. Once the gang returns to school life resumes normal and I can pace myself. Planning the New Years Eve. get together and New Years Day meal now. They have called at 100 times today LOL
