Pickle (condiment) Tricks Tue, 12/6/11 2:23 PM (permalink)
First of all let me declare that I am not a real 'Pickle' lover. I tend to remove most pickle slices I find on Burgers or alongside a sandwich. I will eat them now and then as a bite 'on the side' or as a strong Dill Spear with a lunch. OK, You get the idea that I tolerate rather than pursue pickles most of the time.
Lately, However, we came across Half-Gallon (64oz) bottles of spicy sliced pickles produced using the FAMOUS DAVE's Label while shopping at Costco. The slices are a spicy sweet pickle chip that I find very good. So Maybe I am a convert to pickle lover after all these years.
That's not my purpose in starting this thread though. As we spooned out some of the pickle-chips there remains the spicy/sweet brine in the jar. Seems like a shame to waste it, so we boiled a half-dozen eggs, peeled them and dropped them into the jar with the remaining pickles (more than half the bottle) and at least a quart plus of the brine. After sitting in the juice for three days I tried one of the eggs...downright good !! Not as strong flavored as the red-colored bar eggs I have enjoyed, but getting that way. I will wait a couple more days to see if a 5 day egg is better than a 3 day egg, and will report back.
Anyone else ever play with their pickles or eggs???
