Sorry, man...I didn't see your thread before I posted mine. So, S&F to you!
If you like spicy, you can use the brine I posted in my thread Here
Or, if you don't like spicy, you can use the same recipe, but just eliminate all the peppers and hot sauce. Instead, add some juice from a can of
pickled beets for some color. You can also add some pickling spice if you like. If you do this though, I recommend removing the cloves from the
pickling spice before adding. Cloves turn the eggs a funky color of grey and they don't look very appetizing.
The sky is the limit, in terms of what you can use for additives. Just make sure you use a little sugar to knock the edge off the vinegar, and don't
go below a vinegar ratio of 2:1 when everything else is added. Onions are always good, so is garlic. Another good secret ingredient is mushroom
juice from a can of mushrooms.
How's that; better now?
