Favorite Pickled Egg Recipe

What is your favorite pickled egg recipe? What kind of vinegar (rice,apple,grape etc) do you use? What is your ratio of vinegar to water? Also, please no beet pickled eggs. I love beets but this project will not include them.

    Simple - Never Measure - Water, White Vinegar, Jar of sliced Red Beets with juice, Small handful of Pickling Spice, Salt.
    Optional items - Garlic, Hot Peppers, Horseradish, Gardenia, Stuffed Spanish olives, Capers or whatever.
    EDIT:
    Sorry, didn't see the no beets thing.
    Just can't imagine pickled eggs sans beets!

    This recipe does use beets, but HOLD ON, not pickled beets so they can be left out and not affect the overall taste of the pickled eggs too much. This is the simplest and best version of the many recipes I've tried. So leave out the beets and give it a try, the eggs are delicious. I guess you could omit the beet juice (although I never have) but you'd lose the beautiful color the eggs develop after 3 or 4 days. I'm posting the recipe the way I found it in case anyone wants to try it with the beets.
     
    Amish Pickled Eggs and Beets

    Recipe By: Mercy on April 29, 2005
    Yield: 6 eggs

    Summary:

    "This is an easy recipe that my grandmother used to serve in the spring. My brother still refers to this dish as "Easter eggs". Slices of onion or hot pepper may also be added to the pickling liquid with the beets and eggs." The onions are delicious, btw.

    Ingredients:

    1 cup cider vinegar
    1 cup beet juice ( add water, if necessary, to make 1 cup)
    1/2 cup brown sugar ( packed)
    1 teaspoon salt
    6 hard-boiled eggs, shelled
    1 (15 ounce) cans small round beets (plain beets, not flavored)
    1 small onion (optional), sliced

    Directions:

    1. Boil first four ingredients gently for 5 minutes.
    2. Cool the liquid then pour over eggs and beets, cover and let stand overnight (or up to three days) in the refrigerator.
    3. To serve, cut eggs in half or quarters.

    combine water, vinegar, sugar and pickling spices in a saucepan.
    no measurements, just add as much vinegar and sugar etc as you want to taste.  (use about 6 cups of water though).
    heat to boiling stirring occasionally
    pour boiling mixture over hard cooked, peeled eggs placed in jars (I use old pickle jars etc.) (about 3 eggs per pickle jar so the liquid can fester).
    Let sit until cool.
    Cap.
    store in refrigerator till ready to eat.
    Prepare for your teenaged daughter to complain every time your husband opens the jars.

    Go to just about any beer bar or American Legion/VFW in Seattle or Bremerton Washington. Ask the bartender for a couple. Served on a bar napkin with a shaker of salt. Draft Beer and pickled eggs, oh yea!

    Note that he needs to go to a "cashier".  He still can't figure out the self-scan.

    Well, those things don't really work. I mean, it says scan and there's no slot big enough to scan my store card. And when you try to pay there's nothing indicating which places you're supposed to insert you money. It's not my fault that they don't have a sign saying with set of slots is for money and which is for change. No wonder people always go to cashiers.

    I HATE those Damn Scanners too! I've been known on occasion to raise my voice only loud enough so everyone in the store can hear me to curse those machines and petition to have them thrown out and replaced by real human beings!

    My grandmother was from the Ukraine, and this is her recipe............simple and delicious.
     
    3 cups white vinegar
    1 /2 cup water
    2 tablespoons horseradish
    1 tablespoon pickling spices
    2 cloves  garlic, peeed and chopped
    1 dozen   peeled hard boiled eggs  Put all ingrdients in saucepan (exceot eggs) and bring to boil.  Lower heat and simmer for five minutes.   Pour over the eggs and put in containers.  Leave them in refrigerator for two days before eating.  (At Easter time, she would add beet juice to them, instead of the water.)
    She pickled polish sausage the same way.
    Sometimes, for dinner, we would have the eggs and sausage along with potato salad and rye bread!

    There's always someone at the podium, and while I like using self-scan, sometimes the machine isn't behaving (and that VOICE!), so I just look at the individual behind the podium and they come right over. They know. I think the place that has the smoothest self-scan with no problems is Home Depot (as long as it's not a huge piece of wood or something!).

    I go to Joe Jost often.  The have a huge refrigerator section like those in super markets filled with their pickled eggs.  They sell them individually, by the quart, half gallon and I believe gallon.
     
    I believe their recipe is available online.

    Haha   ... at Walmart I have left a buggy full of groceries and walked out because only the self-serve was open (late night).   The next night the Asst. Man. opened a checkout herself to check me out.

    Some Harvard MBA will figure out that they lose more sales and profits because customers don't like them than what they save in payroll costs.

    Take a cashier of today and send him/her back to before UPCs were printed on everything (pre-1974).  Cashier had to pick up each item and read the price and then punch it into the register.  That was when you really needed to check the receipt; some cashiers were great and others were not so much.
