I got a great deal on 24 eggs at the FarmersMarket: Manning – Perth the other day and have been putting them to good use. I wanted to preserve the last dozen or so and turned to a childhood favourite, the humble pickled egg. 🙂

Note: these will last for ages in the fridge unless I am near by!

Storing

I leave them out overnight for everything to settle and then pop the jar in the fridge to help them last longer.

They are ready to eat after that first night but do get better with age.
