Has anyone tried the first recipe? I think the common thing in all these recipes are they all have dry mustard. I am over run with white silkie eggs. I bet they would make good pickled eggs because of their small size. I have to do something. If you have another recipe please add it.


12 hard-cooked eggs, shelled
1 medium onion, sliced thin
3 /4 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 1/ 4 cup vinegar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon dill weed
1 /4 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 clove garlic, halved
1 /2 teaspoon mustard seed

Pack eggs and onion in 1-quart or larger jar. Bring other ingredients
to a boil. Then simmer 5-7 minutes. Pour over eggs. Chill 3 days before
serving. Eggs will be yellow.
Dill Pickled Eggs

Ingredients (6 servings)
3 Dozen Hard Boiled Eggs (hopefully peeled)
2 lg Bunches Fresh Dill, roughly chopped
2 lg Jars, Generic Dill Spears (or slices)
2 lg Yellow Onions, sliced into rings
1 lg Green Pepper, sliced into rings
2 lg Sweet Red Peppers, sliced into rings
1 qt Cider Vinegar
1 qt Bottled Water (Purified or Spring Water)
1 sm Handful Whole Cloves

Drain pickle juice into large pan. Add cider, water, cloves and dill.
Bring liquid mixture to full boil; then reduce heat to simmer for
45 minutes to one hour (make sure you can open the windows, it's rather
fragrant)Place eggs, vegetable slices and pickle spears into large glass
or hard plastic container (large ice cream pail works well).
Strain liquid mixture through a pasta collander and pour liquid over
eggs and vegetables.
Let sit for 24-36 hours at ))room temperature((
The eggs will be a very, very bright yellow and have a wonderful dill
flavor the whole way through. The vegetables and pickles will have a
dill flavor never before experienced -- and can be eaten separately or
used as a complimentary garnish.

My kids just wait until we are done with a jar of homade pickles & then fill it up with eggs, they reuse the juice several times. They also like them in the juice left from the pickled jalepenos.

I've heard that folks pickle quail eggs.... I have a frig full and need to do something with them, but have no idea how long to boil a quail egg.. or how easily one could peel one. sounds like quite a chore. Anyone have any experience with this. No doubt these recipes would work fine with quail eggs too??

Could you use these recipes for regular eggs or bantam eggs? I don't have quail but my hubby tried some pickled quail eggs and liked them. I do however have a bunch of bantam eggs.

Any recipe works well with quail eggs. And they are a chore, I wont lie. But everyone loves them especially the little one's so it is worth it. I just boil mine for about 5 minutes.
I even made deviled quail eggs for Christmas.

I dont really eat them either, but I do enjoy them on a salad.

I make pickled beets, and I always put hard boiled eggs in with them. Leave them sit for several days and the eggs turn the prettiest pink, right through to the yolks, and boy are they tasty! (The pickled beets are yummy, too)

Anyone want that recipe? I'll post it if so, don't have it in front of me right now!
