Pickled Eggs Sat, 04/23/11 12:14 PM (permalink)
Is anyone making pickled eggs for Easter?
My mother(age 89) remembers her mother making pickled eggs for Easter as long as she can remember.  I also, always make them for Easter.
My basic recipe :
1 C water
3/4 C cider vinegar
3/4 C sugar, I use splenda instead of sugar with great results.
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
2- 14 oz small whole beets
6-8 peeled hard boiled eggs
Bring 1st 4 ingredients to boil, stir to dissolve salt.  Remove from heat, let sit 5 minutes.  Add both cans of beets with liquid.  Refrigerate overnight, add eggs.  I try to let them stay in the pickled beets at least 3 days, but it is hard to keep my husband out of the eggs.

    Thank you for the recipe.
     
    What size jar do you use?
    Do you eat the beets? Do you also add the beet juice?
    Do you think you could use the same solution for a dozen eggs?
     
    Sorry for all of the questions.  I love pickled eggs and the more I can get a recipe to make, the better!

          I wonder whether taverns still have jars of pickled eggs, pickled sausage and pickled pigs feet on the bar.

            Around here, absolutely...and by the end of the night most of the patrons are too!

              I always loved the eggs and sausage. I tried the feet once. Even shots and beers couldn't get me over the pickled pigs feet hump.

                Thank you for the recipe.

                What size jar do you use?
                See the "bowl method" below.

                Do you eat the beets? Do you also add the beet juice?
                >>> Yes, you can eat the beets, and yes, you do add the beet juice.  Or if you want to save yourself the work of making the pickled beets from scratch, you can pickle the eggs using commercially canned (jarred) pickle beets, pouring it all (beets & juice) from the can into a glass or glazed (non-porous) bowl, adding some more vinegar to the pickled beet/peeled egg mixture (so as to be sure you cover the eggs with liquid), covering with Saran, and refrigerating.   If you want a little more flavor, you can a few onion flakes to the soaking mixture. 

                Do you think you could use the same solution for a dozen eggs?
                Sure.  You just may have to add more vinegar so that the eggs will all be covered.  The more you dilute the beet juice with vinegar, the longer the eggs will have to soak in the mixture to get a darker color, but you can check that by taking a tablespoon and lifting one of the eggs out to determine if the color is to the shade you desire.  (Of course, you can always add another jar of beets to the soaking bowl to help the situation.)  Also, the longer the eggs are soaked in the beet juice, the further the color will penetrate inside toward the yolk.  Once colored. the white of the egg won't fade if rinsed.

                Sorry for all of the questions.  I love pickled eggs and the more I can get a recipe to make, the better!

                  Do they taste like beets or eggs or a beaten egg?
                  Really what's the taste?

                      Since the white of a hard-boiled egg has a very mild flavor, it picks up the vinegary pickling flavor of the pickled beets.  Since the pickling doesn't usually get absorbed all the way to the yolk (as I mentioned in my answer above to mar52's post, the yolk retains its stronger "cooked egg" flavor.  It makes for a good combination of flavors, and you could get somewhat of an idea of the combined taste (remember, I said "somewhat") if you ate a pickle (or a pickled beet) at the same time that you ate a hard-boiled egg.  This would also be somewhat the same flavor you would get from egg salad if you removed the mayo taste.

                          Heck, I don't know how to describe it any other way. I did buy some jarred pickled eggs not long ago (Fischer) that I ended up tossing. They were so vinegary they were inedible. All you could taste was the vinegar.

                              Didn't we have this conversation a few months ago even delving into regional varieties and differences? I think it caused me to go out and buy 4 one liter sized spring top canning jars and try some cold pickling.

                                      Having been born East of Williamsport, PA  this German Beet style pickled egg has been a family tradition for over one hundred years. They're great plain or added as garnish to a Beet and Green salad. Reading the comments I can't believe how unknown something this good is about the country.

                                        I'm from PA also and never knew any other way to make them other than with beets. I add a little pickling spice to mine as well.
                                        And yes, every bar in my home town had a jar of Penrose pickled eggs & pickled sausage. Pigs feet were optional; some had them, some didn't. There's another thread on here that discusses that topic.

                                          I'm going to try these. We have alot of hard boiled eggs right now. Only so many deviled eggs and egg salad I can eat.

                                                          Never tried to make them myself, but I used to enjoy the 'Bar-Jar' eggs ! They sure tended to create a barrier around me an hour or so after eating a few. Few people would occupy the neighboring bar-stools for long once the egg-fog began ! Think of the visual image of 'Obi-Wan' and 'Yoda' at the end of the StarWars trilogy. There was a visible 'light-force' generated by those eggs !
