Peel the eggs carefully and let them stand in fresh, cold water.
Don’t use any of the eggs whose yolk is exposed or the vinegar will go cloudy and look really unappealing.
Slice the red onion, leaving the slices whole, and chop the celery.
Put 3 eggs into a wide necked jar followed by a sprinkling of celery.
Push the onion slices and rosemary against the side of the glass jar for a nice decorative effect and hold them in place with the next layer of eggs and celery. Continue with the layers until the jar is full.
