Pickled Eggs! How to Make Homestead Heart's Recipe for Homemade Holiday Gifts!

Hi ya Gorgeous! 
When would now be a good time to get started on making some beautiful, hand crafted, tasty, home made gifts for the holidays? 

 Remember, no matter what it looks like in the world, you can choose joy and create meaningful moments and memories for your loved ones! I still think it's going to be the best year ever! 2020 is just coming in slowly to awesomeness. 

 Everything I learned about making these is from my Mom, and she learned from Homestead Heart. I absolutely love her channel- please check it out here: 
Recipe: 36 boiled eggs  - 12 per quart jar
Wide mouth glass quart jars 
1 cup apple cider vinegar (for bonus flavor) 
1 cup white vinegar 
1 cup water 
3-4 bay leaves 
1/2 tsp dry mustard powder 
1 tsp turmeric 
1 tsp garlic powder NOT granules 
1/2 tsp salt *do not use iodized salt - use canning or kosher or himalayan 
1 tsp or tablespoon of red pepper flakes - add heat depending on your taste 
FRESH garlic pieces, or jalapeno slices to layer in jar Louisiana red hot sauce - about 1/4 cup per jar to top off brine with. 
REMEMBER to do the AIR BUBBLE - if you do not have a fancy tool, just use a butter knife. 
Final step - you MUST leave this in the back of the fridge, hidden away from sight for a minimum of TWO WEEKS. The eggs need ample time to pickle and marinate in the sauce and be zesty and delicious! The "how to" is in the video - enjoy watching - and please let me know in the comments if you make this recipe!
