This is our favorite recipe for pickled eggs, a spring treat when the hens start laying a lot of eggs!

It’s similar to “German” pickled egg recipes and came from a Montana pioneer friend that he got

from his mother. These are great to eat plain, or make a superb egg sandwich, egg salad, chef

salad, or deviled eggs!
