Hard or soft-boiled eggs are soaked in liquid spiked with spices and soy sauce that gives you beautiful dark brown eggs
One of the things that mom taught me how to make before I moved to Minnesota Spiced Boiled Eggs. It’s one of my favorites and mom made them often to accompany our meals or as snacks.
Dad loved his hard-boiled eggs like really hard and dark in color and so mom’s recipe took about 2 days to infuse all that flavor and color into the eggs. I used to make it the way mom does, but now I shortened the time though. I just soaked the eggs in the liquid for 12 hours and it gives me great result too. I think the colors are dark enough for me and I can taste the spices too. I used dark soy sauce instead of regular soy sauce. A little bit of cheating but hey, it works 🙂
