Pickled Eggs

By: Beth Fisher

Pickled eggs, once a way to preserve fresh farm eggs, is now a trendy appetizer and colorful and flavorful substitute for plain old deviled or boiled eggs. They are an easy protein filled snack or can be served with a sprinkle of basil or green onion, diced pickled beets from Martha’s Joy and capers as pictured for an elegant appetizer.
