Question about making Pickled Eggs VERY spicy (hot) - Our suggestion would be to make sure the seeds of the hot peppers are in the jar not just the peppers. Another suggestion is to add thai chili peppers in with the eggs. 11-12-05

4 cups sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup water
1/4 tsp. salt
3 egg whites
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts
food coloring, optional

Mix sugar, corn syrup, water and salt in 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Cook on full power for 20-22 minutes until hard ball stage is reached. (This is an old microwave cookbook, you may need to check with candy thermometer after 10 minutes) Stir once or twice during cooking. While syrup cooks, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Very gradually pour hot syrup over the egg whites and beat until the candy loses its gloss. Beating may require as much as 12 minutes. Add vanilla and nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper.
