A real pickle question! I found some pickled eggs I made a year or more ago in the back of the fridge. They are in a sealed jar (not heat sealed) and in a vinegar brine with onions and beets. They look and smell wonderful though the yolks looks a little dry. Can you think of any reason they wouldn't still be edible and enjoyable?

If they've been in the fridge the entire time, they are probably ok, but given the amount of time they've been in there, I would probably toss them.
