Pickled eggs

Pickled eggs is a traditional tavern snack food. They're not as common as they once were, it's become rare in these parts to find a tavern that still sells 'em.

Young people today never even seen 'em. I remember buying a jar of pickled eggs at a truck stop when my Guard unit made a rest stop. Some of the young soldiers were making some really grossed out looks and comments. They never even tried one before and they say they don't like 'em. I offered an egg to anyone that would try them but no takers.

Many would like 'em if they tried 'em but their minds are closed.

I love spicy pickled quail eggs. They are still popular around here.

I worry that the pickled eggs in most bars were made when Abraham Lincoln was a bus buy at stage coach stop.

I was raised in the right area for them, but I hadn't touched them until the past half-decade.

They are delicious gifts from God.

Every Wal-Mart that I've been to in Georgia has them in the same aisle as the beef jerky and pickled sausages.

Should be in your local WalMart and if not order them to the store from the net. I also see them in our grocery stores Publix, Winn Dixie etc.

Never cared for them until I tried making my own. Turns out it wasn't so much pickled eggs I didn't like as it was the most common seasonings. I pickled my with oil, vinegar, garlic, and Italian spices. They also go great in tuna salad.

I've recently started making my own. I've only done two batches, but they were big batches. I'm almost out, so I'll be making more soon. My problem is that I can't seem to stick to a recipe. I always give in to the urge to play around with the spice mixture. The most recent batch I did we're spiked with generous amounts of paprika and chili powder. They have an odd red tint to them, but they're mighty tasty.

I've shortened the process by buying the already boiled eggs from Costco. All that peeling is a real beating when you're doing 4-6 dozen at a time.

As somebody already said, they're great in tuna salad.

Back in the days when a bar was more or less a beer joint, they might offer hot dogs or such for a snack..The pickled eggs were made by using the juice of what was left from pemrose hot pickled sausages ...If the hardboiled eggs were left too long in the juice, you could bounce them off the floor like a superball...

I have been saving up on pickle juice after eating the pickles. I plan to put the eggs in the juice for two weeks. Do you guys think that is long enough? Any other tips?

John, add some heat, I like to add serranos, jalapenos and red chili peppers to mine. I just halve them and toss em in. Onion as well. Hard to mess it up, really.

This is how I do it. Just "recycling" the pickle juice. I usually wait 4-7 days, of course, the longer you wait, the better they will be. I have been using the same jug of juice for I don't even know how long. When a jar of pickles is done, I just top it off with the new juice. I have never added spices or peppers to them, but I sure will now.
When I was a kid, I would go with my Dad to a section of town called the "Village" to get pizza from the Sandera Club, he never called ahead, it gave him time to have a draft or 6, and I was always treated with a bag of chips and a pickled egg.
