Pickled Eggs

Post: #555 Wombat

A few years a go I tried preserving eggs by pickling them and was not particularly impressed with the results. Does any one have any proven, ripper recipes for pickling eggs? :toothy7:

Heres a recipe for spiced eggs from the complete book of preserving by narye Cameron-Smith

Ingredients

2 tsp crushed pepper corns.
2 tsp roughly crushed allspice berries
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp salt
1 litre (1 and three quater pints) wine or herb vinegar
16 small fresh eggs.

Put the seasoning in a bit of muslin and tie into a little bag with string.
pour the vinegar into a saucepan and add the spice bag. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 mins in a covered pan Allow the liquid to cool in the pan and stand for 2 hours before removeing the spice bag.

Meanwhile boil the eggs for at least 10 mins. Place the cooked eggs in cold water to cool, then carefully remove the shells.
divide the eggs between sterilized jars, pour on the could spiced liquid, making sure the eggs are completely immersed in the liquid, and seal with airtight lids.
Leave for a month before opening.

Have not tried it myself yet but I have a big jar of pickled eggs that my mate gave me and wil try after I have finsihed them.

Once you've pickled your eggs, do you store them in the fridge or the cupboard? :toothy8:

Fair enough, thanks guys, and also thanks for the heads up about open flames :lol:

I also make my own Indian food and and now looking of a way to exploit the "natural gas" produced as a power source. :shock:

have you tried the spiced ones? I supose there is nothing to stop you pickling just three in a smaller jar to stop them going to waste.
