Pickled Eggs

March 22nd, 2018

I’ve always loved pickled eggs, but until now have really only made/eaten the ones made in pickled beet juice. A week or so ago, we finished off a jar of Dutch Lunch Spears (recipe from The Joy of Pickling). The empty jar was sitting on the counter and I’ve been fishing out the onions to eat on my salads. I was regretting giving the brine to the chickens, as I always buy organic white wine vinegar for my pickling.

Then I noticed the glut of eggs on the counter and decided to pickle them in the leftover pickle brine. This brine is quite perfect for eggs, because it’s neither too sweet nor too sour. It gives the eggs the taste of egg salad. This week they’ve become one of my favorite afternoon snacks.

Are you a fan of pickled eggs?

    Susy, how long do the eggs have to sit in the brine before you eat them? Is the pickle juice Dill or some other kind of pickles? I’ve always thought there must be some use for the left over pickle juice other than just drinking it. Yes, I do drink pickle juice in small amounts. I’m just too frugal to waste it.

    Have a great egg pickling day.

    Susy, Dutch Lunch Spears are one of my absolute favorite pickles of all time!! I never thought of putting eggs in there to pickle. Might have to try it.
