Reviews for German-Style Pickled Eggs
"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."
