Having cleaned and dried the pan, I added:
- Dried chillies
- Cardamon pods (split)
- Black pepper (cracked)
- Salt ~ 2 table spoons
To the above was added ~pint of pickling vinegar (6% acidity, also spiced). This was heated gently for ~1 hour before binging to a gently boil.
! Do this with the lid on, as vinegar-fumes are irritating to the eyes & nose.
Meanwhile the cold
eggs were peeled, and added to a clean glass jar. The hot boiling vinegar was poured over the eggs, with care to avoid hot-fumes as best as practically possible.
