PICKLED EGGS

This is an old fashioned snack that fits into lots of current diet plans. It makes a good protein snack and is easy to keep on hand. I like to eat a few peppers with an egg. This is especially good when I pop into the house after being out and feeling hungry.

Pickled Eggs
Ingredients
1 (12 ounce) jar hot yellow peppers with brine
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons pickling spice (see mix below)

1 teaspoon ground turmeric
12 hard-boiled eggs, peeled

Directions
Stir peppers and brine, water, vinegar, pickling spice, sugar, salt, and turmeric together in a 1/2 gallon container with lid. Add eggs to pepper mixture and seal container.
Refrigerate for at least 2 days.
