Mustard eggs and Kielbasa

    Was not sure where to put this so I thought this was a good spot. October 1st is coming and for me that means two things:
    1. My sons birthday (going to be 21 this year)
    2. Opening day of bow season (Deer hunting).

    You can see the dilemma I have had (We have celebrated many birthdays before or after the first and I may have missed one or two).

    Anyway, in preparation for this years hunting I made some Mustard Eggs following this:
    12 hard boiled eggs
    1 thinly sliced onion
    Sliced garlic cloves to taste (I like a good bit of garlic)
    Place in a jar with a tight fitting lid.

    Mustard pickling:
    4 cups water
    1 cup white vinegar
    1 cup sugar
    1 tbsp kosher salt
    3 tbsp prepared mustard
    1 tbsp mustard seed (I use 1/2 brown, 1/2 black seed)
    2 tsp turmeric

    Bring to boil, simmer 5 min, allow to cool for a bit before pouring over the eggs. Refrigerate 10 or more days.

    I recently made some homemade Kielbasa so I figured why not put that in as well and see how it does (that is a little Don Julio with the sausage to make the process easier). I also put some hot powder I make in it as well (ground Ghost, Reaper, Scorpion and others). I will let this sit for two weeks and then take hunting with me. I also vacuum seal them in a jar.

    Thanks for looking

    PS. I am not completely terrible, my son is away at college and will not be home for his birthday this year. so my wife and I are taking him to Chicago for a long weekend for his birthday the weekend after.

    Recipe looks a lot like my "Amish Pickled eggs." The turmeric dyes them a "neon" yellow. It will be interesting to see what the kielbasa looks like in yellow.

    Braz, I unfortunately did not have any turmeric so I left this out. the yellow is just from the mustard. I thought about getting some today and adding it in but I am not sure if it would stir/shake in well or not.

    Your eggs look fantastic.

    Benn almost 2 weeks and I had to try one. The eggs are great! They do not hsve a dark yellow color but they are yellow. Yhe sausage has a really nice pickled flavor. I think these will be a big hit while hunting next week.

    Oh yeah! That's what I'm talkin' about.

    The pickled onions were a pleasant surprise to me. I thought they were in the mix just for flavor but they are very tasty in their own right.
