The first thing you want to do when making pickled eggs is to buy a pickling kit from a site like www.dzpickles.com. It should come with a large jar that has a tight lid. It should also include brining packets. Brine is what will actually make the eggs pickle. You should make sure to buy your kit from a site that also sells refill brining packets so you can continue to use them as you continue your pickling.
Once you have your pickling kit it's time to prepare your eggs. You'll want to hard boil the eggs and remove the shells. The number of eggs you'll need will depend on how many pickled eggs you want to end up with as well as the size of the eggs you are using. The brine packet will be enough to make an entire jar of pickled eggs, so try and estimate how many eggs it will take to fill the jar. You can always use any leftover eggs for salads.
Now that you've got the eggs boiled and peeled, you will want to fill your jar about ¾ full of eggs. This will allow you to add any flavoring you want as well as the brining. Many people add garlic and dill, though you can search for pickled eggs recipes and see which one tickles your fancy. You'll also add the brining mixture that came with your kit. Once this had been added, you'll continue to fill your jar up until it is full to the top of eggs, or until you've added the amount of eggs you want.
The next step to making pickled eggs is to add water to cover all the eggs. Don't overfill it, as this can cause spills and messes and might decrease the amount of brine you have in your jar overall. Screw the lid on tight and give it a half dozen or more good shakes to get everything mixed up. Now all that's left to do is set the jar on the counter, out of direct sunlight, and wait about a week. Then you'll have pickled eggs!
As you can see, making your own pickled eggs is simple. All you have to do is boil some eggs, shell them, add spices and brine and give it a week. You can then store them in the jar and any time you want one, just grab one and go. If you want to make other pickled products, you can also store your pickled eggs in another container and use your jar to add vegetables like cucumbers or beets.
