I don’t have 1,000 years to wait for authentic Chinese-pickled eggs (and they’ve never sounded that good to me), so instead, I got creative, making what my children said, were “the best pickles ever!”
Filling a 3/4-liter Pick-It with brine from our pickled beets, we plopped in 8 hard-cooked along with thoroughly-cooled and peeled, farm-fresh eggs. Three days later? The cinnamon, cloves, and allspice spiced-brine, and beautifully-colored beet brine, permeated the egg whites.
The brine is loaded with nutrition as well as being a natural probiotic, infusing the eggs with nutrition.
Simple Brine-Cured Hard-Cooked Eggs
- 3/4-Liter Pickl-It
- 6-8 hard-cooked, peeled, cold farm-fresh eggs
- 2 3-inch stick cinnamon
- 6 whole cloves
- 2 whole allspice berries
- Pickl-It lacto-fermented beet brine
- Load Pickl-It with peeled, cold eggs
- Add spices
- Pour in brine, completely covering
- Latch Pickl-It lid; add airlock (eggs will give off gas, so if you use a Plug’R, it will “blow” the plug out the lid); fill airlock with 1 1/2 T water
- Refrigerate for 3-days and then devour!

Did you know...
In South East Asia, tea leaves (Camellia sinensis) are fermented to make a sour-tasting snack. In Myanmar the product is called leppet-so, in Thailand it is known as miang. In Burma, slivered green tea leaves are fermented to make a salad.
I bought mason-jar airlock jars thinking they would work for my grant-funded gut-healing research. Mold! Oxygen-rich yeast! I was crushed thinking my entire research project was destroyed because of the poorly designed equipment. One of my co-workers recommended your Pickl-It and now my mold-free, high-bacteria count research is back on track. Thank you for your superb product that is affordable, laboratory-quality equipment.
