    i want to make a batch of pickled quail eggs and i'm wondering if their gonna be safely preserved without a hot water bath for the jars after being filled. I figure that the batch would probably screw up the eggs by cooking them more but without it are they safe?

    I pickle them to sell and I NEVER place them in a water bath afterwards. I fill the jars with eggs, ladle boiling hot vinegar/spice juice into each jar, place the lid and ring and immediatley turn upside down. Leave them there until they cool. 99% turn out sealed. The ones that don't, I boil a little water in a pot, then place the unsealed jar upside down and boil for a few minutes. Hope it works for you.
