Pickled Eggs

Connie Ottman


This recipe was given to me by a friend who owned a chicken farm. She inherited the farm from her mother and cooked many of mom's recipe. Her mother could make all sorts of recipes from her fresh hen eggs. This recipe is only one of many of her mother's old time recipes. These are great as a snack or side dish but require you to prepare a few days in advance.
