Refrigerator Pickled Eggs


Refrigerator Pickled Eggs, you either love them or you hate them…… or maybe you have never tried them before! The best part is they are not canned. I love this combination of spices with white vinegar, although you can get a different taste with cider vinegar too. Since I am the only one eating these, I just make six eggs at a time. You can double this recipe if you want more. The only thing wrong with Refrigerator Pickled Eggs is waiting for them to get pickled!

Source: According to the National Center for Home Food Preservation:







In a sterilized pint glass jar with a resealable lid,

add the garlic and the dill seed



In a small saucepan add the rest of the

ingredients, except for the eggs.

Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and

simmer for 10 minutes covered.

Remove and discard the bay leaf.



Place two eggs in the jar, top with 1/3 of the onions and repeat

two more times pressing the eggs down below the neck of the jar.

Fill the jar to the top with the hot liquid,

making sure the eggs are covered with the liquid.

Put on the lid and refrigerate.

  1. I grew up eating soft boiled eggs, but I like them in any variation except pickled. Maybe because I have never experienced a good pickled egg before. Thank you for sharing your recipe, I will have to try this to see if I like them pickled at all. 🙂

  2. Snap Diane and me plus pickled garlic, dill cucumbers oh and cabbage we are pickle mad and curried pickled eggs are next on my list 🙂 Nice recipe slightly different to mine so will try it 🙂 How long do you leave yours before you eat them?

      • HaHa don’t Diane… my boys are like that diving in as soon as they have been in the fridge for a day..If you make a few holes in the egg with a cocktail stick they absorb the vinegar quicker…I will making your recipe today it has few more spices than mine so I think it may be better it will be fresh dil as I don’t have the seeds 🙂 x
