    I personally like all things pickled from pigs feet to cherry peppers..But my all time favorite is pickle eggs and here is my recipe..

    1 doz. hard boiled eggs
    1 1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 whole cayenne peppers
    2 teaspoons sugar
    2 tablespoons whole peppercorns
    1/2 cup of water
    2 bay leaves
    2 1/2 cups vinegar
    2 tablespoons Tony Chacheres
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

    Shell your eggs and pack in jar.Mix all the ingredients and boil..Let brine cool then pour over eggs and seal jar..Refrigerate for at least 2 weeks then enjoy..

    That sounds awesome. I've never had pickled eggs but I have been meaning to try them. Now instead of buying them I will make these from my friend's farm fresh brown eggs. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I'm gonna give it a try as soon as I find Tony Chacheres lol
    For you guys that cant wait, vacuum pack them in a jar or canister. Cuts the wait time in half! :wink:

    I love pickled eggs I usually just put them in the vinegar from hot mamas but this sounds very good. By the way if a little redhead shows up at your door to chew you out :angry: that's my wife she hates the effect pickled eggs have on me :crazy:

    P.S. what is Tony Chacheres and where do you get it?

    I just got mine at Walmart today, $1.36 for 8 oz. They didn't have cayenne peppers though, I had to go to another store to find those. I'm going to make this recipe tomorrow.

    If you can't find the cayenne peppers you can sub with crystals pickled peppers or 1 teaspoon of cayenne powder or 2 chili peppers...

    I found them at the store next door, 3 peppers were 16 cents. Maybe I should have just started at that store?

    You got that right John, never use fresh eggs! What I like to do is put my eggs in a pot of cold water, start a fire under them and wait till they start boiling, then shut them down. Cover and let cool all the way...:wink:
