Poor-mans' Pickled Eggs . . . at it again, New Recipe post#39!

Discussion in 'Quail' started by chickenwhisperer, Jul 20, 2010.

  1. So, my OCD is runnin rampant tonight . . .
    I decided I need to make pickled quail eggs.

    However, I do not want to drive around the corner to the supermarket to get vinegar and the other ingredients.

    I think Im just gonna boil and peel the eggs the old fashioned way, and not soak in vinegar to dissolve the shells.
    Then, Imma eat my last 3 pickles and use the Vlassic Dill brine to pickle my eggs in.

    Thoughts . . .??? (tho I will prolly have this done by the time you chime in [​IMG] )

  2. Did I mention . . .

    I LOVE pickles and pickle juice, I totally drink it!

    So needless to say, "pickle" flavor is not a concern . . .

    They should be wonderful.
  6. So now they gotta soak in the brine jar for a few days, right?

    I put so much hot sauce it was burning my eyes when I heated up the brine.
    These eggs should be pretty tasty . . .

    They should be good and you can reuse the brine, adding a bit more spices as your taste buds desire.

    Now did you peel them? Or just toss the quail eggs in and have the vinegar eat the shell away? If that's the case then I would say only use the brine once.

    We want to know what they taste like.

    My quail are not laying yet and aI can only drool.[​IMG]

    I don't think cheese and crackers compare, but that is my lot at the moment. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Ok, 2 -3 days we want a full report with tasty details. If there is enough could we have a day by day progress report. [​IMG]

  10. K, Im waiting at least 3 days before I try em, so thats tomoro.

    I boiled and peeled the eggs first.

    I did add a ton of black pepper and 1/2 a bottle of Daves Insanity, because I like HOTTT!

    Sorry, the brand was Claussen . . .

    You can see how much hot sauce is in there . . .
