    Pickled Eggs (Lazy Bear Method)

    Call it Recycling, or whatever---It works Great !!

    If you buy & consume Pickled Red Beets, this really works good, and the eggs taste Great !
    All you have to do is save the juice left over, after eating all the Beets in a store bought jar of Pickled Beets. Then put as many Hard Boiled Eggs that will fit, in place of the Beets. Leave eggs in for at least 3 weeks, and the pickling will get all the way to the yolk.
    I usually reuse the juice for 2 or 3 times.

    Give it a try!


    Eat All Pickled Red Beets, and Save The Juice.
    Replace Red Beets with Hard Boiled Eggs:

    After 3 weeks or more, remove what you want to eat, and slice in half:

    Add Salt & Pepper, and Enjoy:

    We use lots of pickled pepper slices at home.  Save the juice and use that to pickle eggs along with some Cajun seasoning.  We have one of those little egg slicer things that slices the egg into even thin slices.  They are great in salads or on crackers with stuff as game day appys.  I never tried reusing the vinegar but think I'll tryit since ya said its ok.  Thanks.

    When I lives at the beach a friend who owned the gas station mini-mart would put the eggs right in with the Hot Mamas. It was his $ 2.00 "breakfast special", sausage and eggs!

    Hey Bear

    Great idea.  I've got a jar of homemade pickled beets just about empty.  Will be filling it with eggs.  Something else I do.  When I finish off a storebought jar of hot banana peppers, I fill it up with stuffed olives and let it sit for about 3 weeks--nice.  But just so you know, they don't work well at all in a martini!!!  LOL

    Back in da day there was a lil barroom, deli, neighborhood hang out down the street from where I stayed.  Their happy hour special was pickled eggs and draft beer, both for 10 cents.  I would walk home from work or class (college daze) and stop in about 3 times a week.  For a doller ya could have 5 rounds.  Get a belly full and a buzz.

    [​IMG]   The only problem was 2 dollars worth made the walk home lots harder and the morning after 'gas'  was epic.

    Thanks Gary!!

    I gotta try some of those other things too, like Heat & Dill.

    The only other store bought jars of juice I ever tried was eggs in leftover "Vlassic Bread & Butter Pickles", and they weren't good at all.

  14. Fantastic to see! I love eggs, and yours look terrific!!!! Cheers! - Leah

    There are a lot of better cooks than me. I'm just good at making things easy to follow.

    My Sister said I should have been a teacher, but I just couldn't wait for my own 12 years to end!!!
