Pickled Eggs

Postby DATsBBQ » Wed Oct 10, 2007 10:18 am

A couple of days ago I discovered I had a half dozen eggs that were getting on the old side. Hard boiled them and when cool placed them in a small pickle jar, added water to cover the emptied the water into a measuring cup. Came to just shy of 2 cups.

Added 2 cups of Apple Cider vinegar to a nonreactive pan. To that I added 6 cloves and stick of cinnamon, brought to boil then reduced to a simmer.

Meanwhile I removed the eggs from the jar an removed their shells. Put 1 dried habrenaro pepper in the bottom of the jar along with some sliced red onion. Then added the eggs and warm seasoned vinegar (with cloves and cinnamon removed) and capped it.

Don't look like much now, but when they have pickled for 10 days or so I'll post a pic.

Here is my pickled egg recipe. I haven't made them in a long time my grandson loves them and has his dad make them.

Pickled Eggs

1 to 2 doz. boiled eggs, shelled
2 c. vinegar
1 tbsp. salt
1 c. water
1 tsp. black pepper corns
1 tsp. mustard seeds
6 pod hot pepper (red chile pods)
1 med. size onion sliced
Heat vinegar and water to boiling and pour over eggs and sliced onion. Let stand 10 days. Very good with beer.
Notes:
Cider vinegar has better flavor but will stain eggs, distilled will not.
Vary spices to taste but keep vinegar, water salt ratio constant.
Variation try 2 tablespoons of pickling spice, 1/4 cup sugar in place of mustard and pepper corns.
Variation mix with pickled beets to get red color.

Pure vinegar will extend the shelf life of the product by at least a couple of weeks.

Other "add-ins":
whole garlic cloves,
a sprig of an herb,
a radish or two
any type of dried pepper

adjust to you personal preference

Love them pickled eggs. Some of the best I can recall came from a pool hall which was the local hangout back in high screwl in Whiskeyta Falls, TX. It was run by a couple of firemen which had staggered days off so when one was working the other was there. Anyway..they bought gallon jugs of hot pickled sausages for sale and when the sausages ran out they filled the jar up with boiled eggs. Turned them eggs bright red and after a week in the jug was some mighty good eating. Made some very aromatic flatulence..sniff sniff.

I love pickled beets, along with pickles. I pickle beets whenever I can! Never tried a pickled egg!

Just tried one. Just as Papa T promised, the outside was discolored. Looked like one of those brown eggs that the grocers get a premium for. Strong vinegar flavor, was disappointed by the lack of heat (dried Hab). Anyway, I put in the fridge thinking if they are chilled the background flavors might come out more.

Pics when I find where the Mrs hid the camera. :banghead:

Laura, I love pickled beets, too. I've never made any myself and would love a recipe!!

As for pickled eggs, I've never tried them. I don't much care for a boiled egg unless it's still warm so don't think I'd like the pickled ones.

one of the most comical police reports I have personally witnessed was all over a jar of pickled eggs. the report was being taken as I entered the liquor store, some scumbucket had entered the store after hours and the owner was madder than a wet hen over it, the only thing removed: the jar of pickled eggs. Thanks for the recipe Papa Tom, I intend to make a few jars for the office.

Never had pickled eggs, I do my own pickled gherkins, onions, and other preserves. I do however like a scotch egg, it's a hard boiled egg that is wrapped in sausage meat about 5mm thick and rolled in breadcrumbs then deep fried. Everybody loves those suckers.

I'll think about pickled eggs and MAY try them?

Wow, this thread had some cobwebs on it didn't it :?: As for me, I don't like boiled eggs unless they are chopped up in tuna salad or "deviled" - - - when I was in College down in little Bohemia, I watched a many of those old Farmers eat them pickled eggs like fritos in the pool halls and domino parlors where I spent my ?spare time? :D but I did enjoy some of that Falstaff when no one was looking ;)
