Description

After scouring the internet (to no avail) looking for a good recipe for pickled eggs and/or pickled sausage, I came up with this recipe. It took a lot of trial and error. These are wicked addictive and easy!

You can leave out the crushed red pepper flakes, but even with it, these are not hot. They make incredibly good egg salad, too!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Linguica Links, Cut Into 1" Pcs.
  • 30 whole Hard Boiled Eggs, Free Range
  • 1 whole Onion, Sliced Lengthwise
  • 4 teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • _____
  • FOR THE BRINE:
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Mustard Seed
  • 1 Tablespoon Fennel Seed
  • 1 Tablespoon Coriander Seed
  • 1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt
  • 4 cups Cider Vinegar
  • 2 cups White Vinegar
  • 1 cup Water
  • 4 whole Bay Leaves
  • 5 whole Star Anise

Preparation

Mix brine ingredients in a large stockpot. Bring to a boil to dissolve everything and then remove from heat and cool.

Bring a pot of water to boil and cook linguica slices for 5 minutes to remove fat. Drain.

In four 1-quart mason jars; layer sliced onion, eggs and linguica until the jar is full. Cover the mixture with the brine and add 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes per jar and spoon in the leftover spices from the brine. Make sure each jar gets a star anise.

Refrigerate for at least a day. These are great within hours of making and they are very hard to stay out of.
The eggs make wicked good egg salad!

Keep refrigerated.

I get my whole star anise at the natural food store. They have more spices to choose from and they are cheaper and fresher than the packaged spices at the grocery store. You can leave out the star anise if you cannot find them, but they look so pretty in the jar!

I made two quarts and gave one to my mom-in-law who LOVED them and LOVED the eggsalad she made with it, as did her father :) Big hit with them. I didn’t add all the crushed red pepper, because I’m a wimp, but next time I will add the full amount.
