  • You will need
  • Method
  • Free range eggs 6
  • Malt vinegar 500ml
  • Pickling spice 1tsp
  • Bay leaves 2
  • Chilli 1, small red

  1. Put the eggs in a pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil then simmer for around 10 minutes.
  2. Take off the heat, drain and plunge the eggs into cold water.
  3. Once cooled, carefully peel them (It helps if you use older eggs rather than fresh ones).

  5. Seal the jar and store for about a week before eating – if you can wait that long. It’s as simple as that.
