Ah spring, when seedlings are started, it snows in Alaska, and the chickens are laying eggs like crazy. I’ve got 5 dozen eggs in fridge ready to sell and two more dozen on the kitchen counter, and I still need to collect eggs today. I think it’s time to break out the eggs recipes when you’ve got too many eggs.

One of the hubby’s favorite way to eat extra eggs is to pickle them. Easy to do and just takes some patience!
1 dozen hard boiled eggs
1 cup water
1 cup vinegar
1 Tablespoon pickle spice
1 teaspoon sugar
Mix water, vinegar, pickle spice, and sugar together in a saucepan. Heat to dissolve the sugar. Do NOT boil this mixture.
Place the eggs in a large jar. Pour the liquid over the eggs. Place a lid on the jar and refrigerate for at least two weeks.
I love eggs. I could eat them for every meal. And backyard chicken eggs are the best! Not only do they taste wonderful, but they’re good for you too! They have 4 to 6 times more vitamin D, a third less cholesterol, 1/4 less saturated fat, 2/3 more vitamin A, twice as much omega-3 fatty acids, three times more vitamin E, and seven times more beta carotene.
