I love the tangy taste of pickled eggs, unfortunately I can no longer eat malt vinegar, and spirit vinegar is never as good. However, I found it’s the lemon zest in the vinegar that makes these eggs taste like they’ve been pickled in malt…You can use any pickling spice combination, but I prefer to use my own #438665 as it gives me the taste I remember of traditional pickled eggs.
