Shannons Spicy Pickled Eggs

Questions & Replies

  1. Im assuming 12 eggs per jar and use 1/4 of the brine in each jar?
  2. I'm wondering if you cut up your peppers? or just boiled them up whole
  3. How long will they keep it hard aren't sealed
  4. I was wondering what size jar for so many eggs and all the peppers, carrots, and onion? I've made pickled eggs before and had good results but this recipe looks more interesting and spicy than the one I used. Thanks.
  5. Do you slice the the peppers or what


  1. I used this as a base recipe but I mixed it up a bit with Trinidad scorpion and Carolina reapers with some additional Bhut Jolokia powder and some homemade fatali Bajan sauce to bring in a little more heat. Had one of the eggs after 2 days as a tester, but I am going to let them sit for awhile to meld. I put the eggs in the solution warm to help further the process.
  2. What size jar did you end up using? Thanks looks amazing.
  3. My husband LOVES anything hot & pickled, so I had to try these....they were FANTASTIC ! I was leery of 8 habeneros, so only put 4 in mine...will definitely add all 8 next 1000 runs, as this is our NEW fav. recipe! My sister even asked me to make her some for her Christmas present ! Great flavor , tks !
  4. Iloved them. this recipe is a keeper.
  5. I made these eggs last august, everyone loved them. You think they will be too hot to enjoy, but no. They were just spicy enough. I am fixing to make them again, we love them.


I'm a stay at home mommy of 2. I was raised in St. Jacobs, Ontario, Canada. My favorite cookbook comes from the public school I went to in St. Jacobs. I love it because the recipes are personal ones that are tried and true! I love to cook, bake, can, etc. I consider myself really fortunate to have been raised in an area where home baking and canning where the norm. I watched my mom and grandma preparing homemade jams and pickles every year and I caught the "bug". I really enjoy simple, delicious recipes! However, if a recipe is amazing I don't mind putting the extra time and expense into it.
