Eggs are nutrient-dense, low in carbs and a good source of the highest quality protein. They are the ideal keto-friendly snack that will keep hunger at bay.

My husband has a really strong childhood memory of going to the local rural store with his Dad and always being offered a picked egg from a big jar on the counter. He also adores curried eggs, so I thought I would try to combine the two for him.

The addition of curry and spices in this pickling liquid gives the finished eggs a pretty yellow tint and a deliciously spicy flavour.

Imagine if they became some other child’s special memory! Enjoy!

Hi there!
I am so excited about these. The liquid is cooling now, but it doesn't look like it'll be enough to cover all 12 eggs. Should I make another batch of liquid, or just add more water?
Thank you!


Hi Emily, I'd make another batch just to make sure the flavour is strong enough. You can re-use the pickling liquid for the next batch. I hope this helps!


This looks awesome!  Do I put the jar in the fridge right after I pour the liquid or do I let it sit at room temp for a day or so before refrigerating?


Hi Sonia, they should be kept in the fridge. I hope you like them! 😊
