My hubby loves them - made with brown vinegar as they used to be made! I boil the vinegar before pouring it over the boiled peeled eggs.

just normal brown vinegar?

I tried some today so will let you know in 10 days or so when i taste them.

Does anyone know why you are supposed to boil the vinegar?

Not unless its when you boil with the spices to make it spiced.
Do you let it go cold or pour over the eggs hot.

For pickling we've been using a recipe from Pru Leith! It's rather nice, providing you can find allspice berries, rather than ground allspice.

Pru Leith's Pickling Vinegar

1.1 litres / 2pts malt vinegar
8g 1/4oz blades of mace
8g cinnamon stick
8g allspice berries (my note, Waitrose sell them...)
8g black peppercorns
8g mustard seeds
4 whole cloves
1 chilli
15g sliced root ginger

Put everything into a large saucepan and heat gently, covered tightly, until on the point of simmering. Remove from the heat.

Leave for 3 hours then strain through muslin or a jelly bag.

The vinegar is now ready for use.
