Does anyone have a really good pickled egg recipe? We have 12 laying hens that are producing way more than we can eat. We made some with a recipe off the internet and they suck! Looking for a good tried and true recipe.

My last batch was "done" SB weekend. They were good. I had a couple tonight as side with my KungPow chicken and they were excellent. I'm sure they can spoil like anything else but a month is better....

Don't rush it.  I posted a while ago that the eggs should soak a minimum of 2 weeks.  I tried one at exactly 2 weeks and it was OK.  I then waited another week and they were much, much better.  At a month, they are awesome.

I think you can safely pull them out of the frig at 2 weeks and store at room temp.  That was the whole point of pickling eggs back in the day.  Shelf stable at room temp.  I can't begin to estimate the number of pickled eggs that I ate at Chet's Friendly Bar in Point when I was in college and those were just on the shelf behind the bar.  And I'm still here!  The pickling would probably go faster at room temp.  I just have room in the beverage frig in the garage so that's where mine are.

I am 6 days in and it is really hard not to dig in and have one. May need to form some kind of premature egg eating (PEE) support group.

I made two quarts about a month ago.  One jar is toast so I fired up another tonight.

Gotta have enough for the fishing opener with the hunting crew!

My son and I cracked the lid on the second batch of eggs this past Wed night. I believe that was 3 weeks if I'm not mistaken. They are delicious. Not as hot as I would like yet so I'll need to ramp it up as I go here. I may try cutting back on the sugar just a little. They won't last long when my vulture buddies stop over that's for sure.

I'd try that recipe with the pickled beets.  I did a few quarts of beets last fall.

I fired up a batch of eggs with the recipe I posted a while back.  My wife laughs when she sees me taking off the cover and smelling them. Wednesday marks two weeks and then it's on!

I grew up in South Central PA and the only pickled eggs were called red beet eggs. We use vinegar, sugar, a few pickling spices, sliced onion, and sliced pickled beets. The eggs sit in the beet juice and are perfect at about 5 days. You want to have the egg whites red, and the yolk still yellow. Yum!!

If anyone wants the full recipe I would be happy to oblige in a message.

I went to Menard's of all places and found eggs for 58 cents a dozen, plus 11% refund. Bought 2 dozen for the next batch. I'm hooked on them !   Bugle-Trout your recipe rocks !!!
