This was my first time making and eating pickled eggs, but it was easy and pretty tasty. I bought a 1 quart jar, but only 10 eggs fit (and even then, they were squished to make fit), and only about half the onions and liquid could fit in the jar.
The only pickling spice I could find at our grocer was McCormick's, and it contains cloves. I pulled out the cloves because people complained they made the eggs brown and over-powered the flavor. I could still taste the cloves in the eggs, so I must not have gotten them all, or else they infused the rest of the spices. I also added a tablespoon of minced garlic and some mustard seed, but I cut out the peppercorns after reading the other reviews.
In all, I wasn't too pleased with the taste of the pickling spice. It tasted like ginger bread or something. I'd prefer a stronger vinegar and garlic taste. I think I might skip the pickling spice next time and add a dozen garlic cloves instead.
