Reviews for German-Style Pickled Eggs
"did not like the taste to pickled"
"I have made these for Oktoberfest parties. My family requests them at other times. They are quite good! Easy to prepare."
"these are the first pickled eggs I have ever tasted or made, so I did not really know what to expect. They are very easy, and I think would also be great sliced on a salad, or tea sandwiches. I think that next time I may kick up the spice a wee bit, perhaps add a bit of red pepper flakes. My cloves were not the freshest, so that could be the reason they were more mild than expected."
