Pickled Eggs are typically hard boiled eggs that are cured in vinegar or brine. As with many foods, this was originally a way to preserve the food so that it could be eaten months later. Pickled eggs have since become a favourite among many as a snack or hors d’œuvre popular in pubs, bars and taverns, and around the world in places where beer is served. After the eggs are hard boiled, the shell is removed and they are submerged in a solution of vinegar, salt, spices, and other seasonings.
Recipes vary from the traditional brine solution for pickles, to other solutions, which can impart a sweet or spicy taste. Hot Pickled Eggs have an added level of heat integrated in the vinegar solution to infuse another level of heat into the Pickled Eggs.
