A few years ago, I put a smashing link here on OTG showing how to make pickled eggs with a twist, as in different colour and flavours but unfortunately the website no longer exists and with it, went all the useful information.

However, I've just found these recipes on fb and while the information isn't as comprehensive, I think you'll find it very useful if you fancy making your own pickled eggs.

Pickled Eggs Recipe

Prep time: 20 minutesCook time: 10 minutesYield: Makes 6 pickled eggs
Ingredients
Beet pickled eggs with cardamom and anise
1 beet, peeled and roughly chopped into 1 to 2-inch sized pieces, cooked*
1 cup beet juice*
1 cup cider vinegar
1/4 onion, sliced
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3 cardamom pods
1 star anise
6 hard cooked eggs**, peeled
*Simmer the chopped beets in a cup of water, covered, until tender, 30-40 minutes, or used canned beets. Use the beet juice from the cooking water, or the juice from canned beets.
Curried pickled eggs
1 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup water
1/4 onion, sliced
3/4 cup white granulated sugar
3 cardamom pods
1 teaspoon mustard seeds (yellow or brown)
1 Tbsp yellow curry powder
6 hard cooked eggs**, peeled
Jalapeno pickled eggs
3/4 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp white granulated sugar
6 cloves
2 jalapeno peppers, sliced in half lengthwise, seeds removed and discarded
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon dry oregano
1/4 onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, peeled
6 hard cooked eggs**, peeled
Tarragon pickled eggs
3/4 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup water
1/4 onion, sliced
2 sprigs fresh tarragon
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp white granulated sugar
1 teaspoon herbs de provence
6 hard cooked eggs**, peeled
**Boil or steam the eggs until hard cooked. To steam the eggs, place in a steamer rack over boiling water, cover and steam for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and rinse with cold water. To boil the eggs, cover with 2 inches of cold water in a saucepan, bring to a boil, cover, remove from heat, and let sit for 12 minutes, then rinse with cold water. Hard boiling works best with eggs at least a week old, otherwise they may be difficult to peel. Steaming works great with fresh eggs.

Method
1 Peel the eggs and place in the bottom of a clean glass jar, quart sized.
2 In a medium saucepan, add the vinegar, water (or beet juice if using), the onion (and jalapeno if using), sugar, and spices. Bring to a boil and cook, uncovered, until the sugar has dissolved and the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool a few minutes.
3 Pour the vinegar onion mixture over the eggs in the jar, covering the eggs completely. If you are making the beet pickled eggs, place some or all of the cooked beets in with the eggs in the jar (this will help to bring color to the eggs, and you will have pickled beets as well.) Secure close the jar's cover. Refrigerate up to a month.
The pickled eggs will be ready to eat after a few days. The longer the eggs sit in the pickling juice, the more the pickling juice will penetrate the eggs.
