From Nepas at SMF.

1½ cups white vinegar
1 cup water
¾ teaspoon dill weed
¼ teaspoon white pepper
3 teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoon mustard seed
½ teaspoon onion juice or minced onion
½ teaspoon minced garlic or 1 peeled garlic clove

Bring all the ingredients except the eggs to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.  Pack no more than one dozen peeled, hard-cooked eggs loosely into a warm, pre-sterilized quart jar (or other similar size container which can be closed tightly).  There needs to be plenty of pickling solution, and enough to completely cover the eggs.  Pour the hot pickling solution over the eggs in the jar, cover, and refrigerate immediately.

Jalapeno pickled eggs

3/4 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp white granulated sugar
6 cloves
2 jalapeno peppers, sliced in half lengthwise, seeds removed and discarded
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon dry oregano
1/4 onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, peeled
6 hard cooked eggs**, peeled


1 Peel the eggs and place in the bottom of a clean glass jar, quart sized.

2 In a medium saucepan, add the vinegar, water (or beet juice if using), the onion (and jalapeno if using), sugar, and spices. Bring to a boil and cook, uncovered, until the sugar has dissolved and the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool a few minutes.

3 Pour the vinegar onion mixture over the eggs in the jar, covering the eggs completely. If you are making the beet pickled eggs, place some or all of the cooked beets in with the eggs in the jar (this will help to bring color to the eggs, and you will have pickled beets as well.) Secure close the jar’s cover. Refrigerate up to a month.

The pickled eggs will be ready to eat after a few days. The longer the eggs sit in the pickling juice, the more the pickling juice will penetrate the eggs.

4 cups vinegar
1 jar sliced jalapenos, including the juice
1 onion, chopped finely
1 cup water

Place as many eggs as you wish to pickle and do the boiling process and remove shells of course and place eggs in pickling jar and add water to cover 1 to 2 inches above eggs. Remove eggs. Measure water from jar in order to replace same amount with mixture of 3/4 red wine vinegar and 1/4 water. Place vinegar mixture in saucepan. for each qt of vinegar mixture add one dried red pepper, 1 clove of garlic, 4 peppercorns, 2 whole cloves, and 1inch piece of ginger root, quartered. bring to boil, reduce heat, simmer 5 minutes and let cool to room temperature.

Place eggs into pickling jar. I use a one-gallon glass jug. pour vinegar mixture over eggs. Cover tightly, let stand at least one week. Open every day during first week to let fumes escape. After a week or so the odor will disappear. enjoy!  The whites turn a nice burgundy color from the red wine vinegar and they are awesome!
