I have never made pickled eggs before but I was given a case of eggs last week so I printed out four easy pickled egg recipes, this being one of them. I sent all four batches to deer camp with my husband and this recipe was voted the very best. This was only four days after making them and they get better every day so I know what to do with the majority of the remaining eggs. I did strain the vinegar to remove most of the spices but left some in each quart jar. Also, I didn't have a preserving pan so I used a tall 12qt stock pot. I put a round cake cooling rack in the bottom and made sure the water covered the jars at least 1 inch. The water was at the very rim of the pot so the lid wouldn't work, instead I used another pot with the same sized rim and set it upside down on top. Some water boiled over but not a lot and it worked to seal the lids.
