    Who has some good pickled egg recipes?

    I like them with white vingar and onions. I tried a batch with cider vinegar, cloves, and cinammon a while back, but didn't care for them.

    I have some chiles in the garden that I'd like to try with white vinegar and onions, but I don't know how to prepare them. Do I need to peel them and throw them in or just slit them and use the way they are, or peel and slice like a jalapeno? Dry them first? Any ideas?

    I've looked around the web for pickled egg recipes with chiles and most just say "add a can of chiles". A few said to add a couple of dried chiles, so I guess I could dry them first, but I am wondering if it's even necessary to dry them or just throw them in there with a couple of slits to let the vinegar in.

    Mac.....I dont kow how to "pickle eggs" But I just pulled a few beets the other day....cleaned, boiled, peeled....then added vinegar, cloves, and sugar....to taste. ( Was just enough beets for DH and my for dinner) Set them in the fridge....then later added a few peeled hard boiled eggs. I like to let them set in the fridge over night...get GOOD and cold. They were yummy!

    I guess nobody here eats pickled eggs...

    Hard boil a dozen eggs and peel, put eggs in wide mouth
    quart jar alone or with sliced onions, beets, peppers, etc.

    Boil 1 1/2 cups vinegar and 1 1/2 cups water along with whatever spices you desire; allspice, mustard, dill, cloves, salt, sugar, cinammon, tabasco, etc.

    Pour pickling juice over eggs in jar. Refrigerate for a week or two and then dig in. I'll eat them whole or slice for a sandwich.

    You can use straight vinegar, but the eggs tend to get rubbery faster. Some people say to let the pickling solution cool first because the hot solution can make the eggs rubbery. I pour it into the jar hot and seal with a lid and ring.

    My husband calls pickled eggs man's food! [​IMG]
    I'll ask my chef friend and get back to you! She was telling me she'd share her recipe with me when I start giving eggs to HER! Couple weeks yet! 18 week old EE are getting close I think!
    I found this HUGE Ball wire topped canning jar at the feed store; its 2 gallons! My husband is so excited to start filling that with pickled eggs! I don't much like them; but he can eat them morning noon and night! Man's Food I tell ya!

    An easy way to make pickled eggs. Buy a jar of your favorite pickles, eat all the pickles. Place boiled, de-shelled eggs in jar. Wait 2 or 3 days. Eat pickled eggs. Yummy. [​IMG]
