Perfect Pickled Eggs

It’s been ages since we have had pickled eggs, with the sun shining and chance of a few picnics over the Easter holidays I thought it was time to find out My Mums fab recipe and make a few. So here goes:

1pt distilled malt vinegar

6 garlic cloves. peeled

1oz pickling spice

small piece of orange rind

blade of mace

Bring to boil and simmer for 10 minutes, strain and cool. Then fill wide neck jar with hard boiled duck eggs and cover with the cooled pickled vinegar. To hard boil duck eggs place in cold water, bring to boil for 15 minutes. Cool and peel.

Store the eggs for a few days until pickled.

Beer and crisps optional!
