  • 12 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups vinegar
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 tbsp mixed pickle spices (mustard seeds, pink peppercorn, allspice, cloves)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 bay leaf


  1. Place eggs into a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to the boil and simmer for 4 minutes.
  2. Drain off the hot water and refresh the eggs under running cold water. Peel eggs and place into a sterilised pickle jar.
  3. In a small saucepan, heat the water, vinegar, spices, bay leaf and garlic and bring to a boil.
  4. Remove from heat, cool slightly before pouring over the eggs, seal the jar and refrigerate for 2-3 days before serving as a snack, part of a meal or barbecue.




Serve with a wholegrain bread roll and a side salad for a balanced meal.

For extra spice, add one red chilli.
