things i love this week

i just love one thing this week.  well, only one is worth mentioning...i love the dads this week. in honor of father's day this sunday, i made these for mike....
mostly, because he loves them.  he has actually said that he needs to do something about his "pickled egg mania".  he probably has a dozen a week. so, yeah, he probably should do something about his "pickled egg mania".  i also made them for him because he gave me this...
and after a long day at work and a long dinner listening to hendrix talk non-stop...he hoes my garden...
happy father's day to all the dads, especially my own dad,  my brother, my uncle ed, and mike. us, moms, thank you. xoxo.


hot pickled eggs {makes 2 quarts}

1 dozen eggs, boiled and peeled
4 hot peppers
1 onion chopped
4 garlic cloves
4 c. white vinegar {5% acidity}
1 t. pickling salt
2 t. pickling spices
2 quart mason jars + lids

sterilize jars for 15 minutes in boiling water.  remove jars from water and divide eggs, onion, garlic, and peppers into two jars.  meanwhile, bring vinegar, pickling spice,  and salt to a rolling boil for 2 minutes.  let lids sit in water you sterilized jars in, for about 1 minute.  remove and dry.  pour hot brine over eggs and screw lids on....allow to cool to room temp.  place jars in fridge.  eggs will be ready to eat in 8 days.  good for 2 months in the fridge.

here are this week's post in case you missed you them:
