      I have not used stevia as a sugar replacement in pickles but have read that it could give a strange after taste many people recommend honey as a sweetner.

        I have not. Lol! But, I’m definitely adding it to my list of pairings! I’m sure I’ll find a book where that will help me get the sour taste out if my mouth! Lmao!! I’ll have to gear myself up though, because I always drink what I recommend!

    I eat one pickled egg every morning for breakfast. Marinated in beet juice, the purply red is a good morning greet for me, and SO easy to make. Just drain juice from canned beets and there you have it!
