This is the first time I have had good pickled eggs since I was a child. These are excellent! I don't like store-bought pickling spice, so I made my own. (I mixed some turmeric and celery seed with the mustard seed.) Thanks for a great recipe1

This is the best recipe for pickled eggs. I have been making it for over 30 years. Thank you for posting.

I've never tried pickled eggs before. I was doing a bunch of canning and figured, hey, why not? These are fantastic! They'll remain a staple in our family!
