Equipment

  • 1 Egg cooker optional, but highly recommended!
  • 1 Medium saucepan with lid
  • 1 Bowl
  • 1 Liquid measuring cup
  • 1 Half-gallon mason jar with air-tight lid avoid metal lids as these will rust

Ingredients
  

  • 16 Eggs pasture-raised, organic
  • 2 cups White vinegar or apple cider vinegar A lot of people like ACV, but I prefer the taste of crisp white vinegar!
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 Tbsp Salt I like Redmond’s Real Salt or Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 3 Garlic cloves peeled and smashed
  • 2 Jalapenos thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ tsp Whole peppercorns
  • 1 ½ tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 ½ tsp Coriander seeds
  • ½ tsp Red pepper flakes optional for a bit more heat!
  • 2 Bay leaves

Instructions
 

  • Hard-boil, chill & peel the eggs. Using a handy egg cooker is my favorite way to make hard-boiled eggs
  • Add the vinegar, water and salt to the medium saucepan to make the brine. Heat until boiling and the salt is fully dissolved. 
  • Meanwhile, add the thinly sliced jalapenos, smashed garlic and spices to the mason jar.
  • Add your cooled and peeled hard-boiled eggs to the mason jar to join the jalapenos, garlic & spices. 
  • Pour in the hot brine and let cool, uncovered, for 1-2 hours.
  • Secure with an airtight lid and place in refrigerator.
  • Wait 7 days before consuming to allow the flavors to penetrate the eggs. Finish within 4 months.
