Pickled eggs aren't the most soignée of snackfoods. Most commonly found in old man pubs or the greasy paws of flat cap-wearing dads, no Instagram filter on earth can make eyeball-like globules look good. Plus, they smell weird.
Freddie Janssen knows that the cured, hard-boiled egg is a hard one to love—heck, she's the first to admit that they smell "kinda farty." But this London picklemaker has managed to see past all that and give the traditional snack a delicious Mexican makeover.
RECIPE: Chipotle Pickled Eggs
To make her chipotle pickled eggs, Freddie simply boils vinegar, garlic, chipotle chilies, and adobo sauce into a brine. She then pours the liquid into a jar, drops in boiled eggs, and refrigerates for three days.
The result is a smoky, spicy snack—perfect with tortilla chips and a cold beer.
Now, the question is, can you too find it in your heart to give the pickled egg another chance?
