Made these for my husband and he absolutly loved them. Said they were the BEST pickled eggs he's ever had. Thank you for sharing.

I loved these eggs! Try to let them sit for at least a week before eating them (tempting, I know) but they taste a lot better with time. I left out the cloves (didn't have any) and dumped the brine in hot so the jars would seal w/o any troubles.
