Pickled eggs, does anyone make these???

I just saw the pickled egg on the Phillippe review, they look just like my Mom's and I love them!  She just puts boiled eggs in a pitcher, adds one 15 1/2 oz can of beets, juice and all and about 1/2c vinegar, more or less to taste.  I could eat them everyday.  However I have NEVER tried the ones from a bar or convenience store.  Does anyone else make these?? Oh, I HATE beets, just give me the eggs.

    put boiled eggs, peeled eggs into a large jar with lid. (dozen boiled, peeled eggs).
    -meanwhile in a saucepan, boil 6 parts water, 1 part vinegar, 1/8 c pickling spice, 3 TBSP crushed garlic cloves, 1 TBSP caraway seeds.  Once it reaches a rolling boil, cool till just warm. Pour over the eggs.  cover jar tightly.  Store in refrigerator up to one month.

    What were the original "parts" of water and vinegar. They must have been fixed volumes if the garlic, spice,and caraway seeds are. If I try to visualize a jar full of large, boiled eggs in my minds eye, my guess the container would be about 6c or a bit more, so the liquid volumes are probably cups.

    My mom used to make batches for our bar operations
    but the local county healh departments always hassled
    us over no calorie and ingredient labels posting on the jars
    so ended up just buying the pre-made commercial stuff
    with all the bells and whistles listed on the jar !
     
    YES BOY65...............She used the secret ingredient...
    RED PEPPER flakes for that spicy twang !!!!!!!!!!
     
    BTW:  She used to do pigs feet and kielbasa too!

    That speaks volumes about your cooking ability or your sense of daring.

    Here ya go Mar. I think I'll make these for our Christmas Eve Appetizer Gathering  Try this recipe:
    PICKLED KIELBASA
    Ingredients
    2 lbs pre-cooked kielbasa or hot links if you are feeling sassy! Also, Cocktail Wieners are very good.
    1 small onions, sliced
    1 cup water
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    3 cups white vinegar
    1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    1 tablespoon pickling spices
    Directions
    Cut up precooked sausage (do not reheat them)into 3 inch links and put into jars with a few slices of onion.
    Bring to a boil the rest of the ingredients and simmer five minutes.
    Pour hot mixture into jars (prefer mason or canning jars other types may explode)over onions and sausages.
    Put lid on jars and carefully hide in the refrigerator at least a day- two days is better- or until they are discovered by a man.

    Beet pickled eggs look "real purty" when sliced and placed on a salad! Not to mention they taste real good too.

    Most supermarkets carry Ball or Mason Jars. Ace Hardware stores carry all kinds of canning supplies. You can also order from their web site and have shipped to a nearby store at no shipping charge.

    This is something that I've wondered about since this post began. When I was a kid, these pickled products like the eggs,red hots,pigs feet,and large pickles were a common staple in the meat or deli sections of supermarkets. My dad used to like the pigs feet and would often get two wrapped in paper. Same with those giant dill pickles. About the only place that I seen them after the early 80's was in convenience stores and bars. I haven't been in a bar for a long time and it doesn't seem like any of the convenience stores or mini-marts in our area sell anything out of gallon jars with tongs, only individually packed items. I do see the eggs and red hots when I shop at the institutional supply cash and carry, but wonder now who sells them and if this is something that health codes now prevent portioning out of an open bottle?

    When I first started venturing into neighborhood bars in the early 60s it seemed rare not to see a large pickled egg jar on the bar. I haven't seen one in years let alone a good ol' fashion neighborhood working man's bar.

    I always found pickled turkey gizzards interesting, too. In the 80s, I lived Nordeast and enjoyed the neighborhood bars, but they seem to have changed since then. Went to Mayslacks for the roast beef sandwiches, Dusty's for their Dagos, My Place for their hamburgers and the Town Pump for spaghetti or whatever the owner Joe Mancino was cooking that day.
     
    Now it seems like I have to drive out of the city and visit some of the small town bars to find interesting places.

    I purchase Pickled Eggs, Pickled Kielbasa, Pickled Pigs' Hocks in Jars at my local Price Chopper market. Bay View brand, packed in Milwaukee, WI. They're all gteat, and I keep a jar of one or another in my fridge at all times so I may indulge at a moment's notice. M-m-m good.

    I made pickled sausage just before Thanksgiving.  The recipe was similar to Foodme's recipe above.    I used BarS sausage and a package of beef hot dogs.    It fill ups a 2 quart jar (walmart $2) nicely and tasting pretty good.

    If you can eat BarS Sausage in any form you're a better man than me. Their products are below the bottom of the food chain.

    BarS is not my first (or 2nd or 3rd) choice for sausage or for sausage dogs;   but I  think it makes a better pickled sausage than Conagra's Penrose or a little better snack than canned vienna chicken sausage & most chicken weiners .      ... Heck, if I bought a "good" sausage,  I sure hell wouldn't pickle it.   I used a pork-beef blend sausage.   ......

    Here are my basic recipes for pickled beets & pickled eggs:

    4 cans of beets(small whole beets).
    1 cup sugar 
    1 cup apple cider vinegar
    1 large plastic bowl with lid
    Drain beets, place in large plastic bowl with lid, heat sugar & vinegar until sugar is dissolved, pour over beets, refrigerate at least 24 hours.  Hardboil eggs,peel, add to beets, takes 5-6 days for eggs to get purple all the way through.

    I brought this thread up with my dad who lives with us. He's in his mid 80's and generally the time between thanksgiving and christmas we let him have treats that we would not rather let him eat otherwise. This pickled egg thing predictably started him jonesing for pickled pigs feet and the eggs. The eggs look simple enough to do, but it's the uncertainty of what he's used to. From what I gather, Red Smith has been the dominant brand down here since the early 70's. I don't know if this is the flavor he's used to as he used to buy both hocks and pigs feet in the store deli's when I was little and his bar days were up in New England. There seems to be very definite regional variety when it comes to the eggs and pork products. Going west they get very hot, north seems to favor the beets and red coloring, east seems to be vinegary sour and going south, that gets sweeter based on what I see. On the other side of the pond they favor using malt vinegar for the eggs. The hock and pigs feet that he apparently liked seem to be consistant with what I've read about recipes up around alabama and the gulf area. I might do two quarts of both a sweet and a sour pickled eggs, but it doesn't seem to be worth trying the pigs feet based on the prices/pound and what you can buy retail. In our cash and carry, 1 gallon of pickled eggs is 18.99 for ~44 eggs and $14.79 for about 11 pigs feet that have generous amounts of shank meat that the supermarket meat departnment feet don't.
    I don't know what the bars get for the eggs, but at the prices above, they must be more then a dollar. It also looks like the health departments have contributed heavily to the decline of these shelf stable foods. Several of the pickled sausage vendors are moving to single serve, individual packages to get around this. The eggs and pickled pork products may have seen their day as their sales and distribution are limited to an older and highly regionalized demographic and static.

    Dawn:  It seems that you covered the bases pretty good.  I am from east, TN and it seems that foks around here like the eggs and feet mildly hot.  I have made both.  I personally like pickled eggs but I have a friend who stays with me that does not do eggs in any fashion???
     
    Go figure?
     
    Both the eggs and pigs feet are great with evening libation.  Us old folks sure do appreciate that type of evening
