We've had a bit of a glut of eggs and with the wet weather a few weeks ago (couple by a lack of nest boxes) the eggs have been a little dirty so I couldn't really sell them. We've been giving them away to friends and family (which has made me popular for brief spells) but we still had quite a few left to do something with.
Pickled eggs was the obvious choice.
So Sunday night I set about boiling them all up (once I'd cleaned the shells and tested that none float) and pickling them in clear vinegar. I had a few large necked jars spare from making chutney and other things involving pickle in the past so I used these, although I've still got to remove the labels.
|Eggs pickled. Now what?|
Two dozen eggs pickled. The only trouble is I'm not sure I like them. It's been years since I've tried one and I do like vinegar a lot more than I used to (I now eat salt and vinegar crisp which I used to hate) so I'll have to try one in a couple of weeks time. Maybe with a packet of crisps.
If I don't like them I'm sure I won't be short of people to give them to.
