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.

Nope.  Splitting up the batch should have no effect.  If you got more spices in one jar, no worries.  I think that you extract the majority of the flavors during the boil in the water/vinegar mix.  It's probably better since the eggs are completely submerged in the brine.

Bugle, I showed your recipe to my brother in law and he sent me this picture the very next day. They're a week old, so the anticipation is definitely building. Going to try to give it another three weeks, but we'll see how that goes lol 

I've never done eggs myself so I can't imagine there being an issue, but splitting up the batch into two jars shouldn't affect anything, right?

Three weeks is a minimum as far as I'm concerned.  Give them a month or two. They get tangier with time and take on more of the spices and other stuff you put in the jar.  If you stuffed the jar with goodies like onion or jalapeño  garnish your egg with them.  A dash of Tabasco or a shake of salt is also a great topping.  Guys in our deer camp put Kim chi and smoked fish on them.

Remember, pickling anything was a preservation technique, not something taught in a Paris Culinary School.  It was a necessity done to make food go further.  Not saying it can't be a tasty treat, but don't expect Dairy Queen.

Broke into the eggs the other day, it'd been about three weeks.

I've never had one before this.

They seemed kind almost bland to me, with a slight vinegar taste. Didn't have much taste.

Any ideas?

Well, it's been about a week.

The red onions I added are starting to turn white, I'm guessing that's a good sign!

Just made a batch using bugletrouts recipe. Did one jar without adding anything, one jar with dill and garlic. Last jar with jalapeños and habanero hot sauce. Should be ready to go for our early march trip to big chetec and the flowage. Hopefully the Fishing will be as good as the eggs!

Glad to hear that everyone is enjoying these.  Grandma would be thrilled.

I haven't deviated from the recipe at all in all of the years that I've been making these but am going to make a few of quarts this week with chilis and garlic.  Going to do one of each and one jar combined.

First try for me!

Followed BT's recipe but added a clove of garlic to each jar along with some red pepper flakes. Never really had pickled eggs.

Can't wait to try them!

Thanks BT!
