    I got curious about how people are using their instant pots for making boiled eggs. I wanted to give it a go. And I was almost out of pickled eggs anyway. So, I put one cup of water in my IP. Added a dozen eggs on top of the steam rack. I set the IP to the soup setting, high pressure for 5 minutes. Then let it drop in pressure normally, about another 5 minutes. Then into a ice bath for 10 minutes. These peeled super easy. Which is great!
    I put 3 cups of cider vinegar with 1 TBS of pickling salt to boil.
    In the quart mason jar I added:
    2 tsp of pickling spice
    2 tsp dried dill
    1 tsp red pepper flakes
    1 tsp dried minced onion
    Only 11 eggs would fit in the jar. Oh, well. You can guess where that one went.....
    Filled within 1/2" to top with the brine. Vac sealed and into the fridge for a week.

    Looking good.You're doing a lot of pickling as of late.Pigs feet next?
    Surprised at no beet juice...I like the earthy flavor it imparts.

    I don't mind pigs feet. Though I doubt I'll do them. I've added beet juice in the past. Just didn't have any. It does add a nice flavor to them.

    What are you using to vac seal your Ball jars?

    Try Amish mustard pickled eggs sometime.
    For 12 eggs
    4 Cups water
    1 Cup vinegar
    1 Cup sugar
    1 TBSP kosher salt
    3 TBSP prepared (yellow) mustard
    1 TBSP mustard seed
    2 tsp turmeric (optional but adds nice color)
    Bring to boil and simmer 5 minutes, allow to cool some then pour over eggs.
    (I often add a few garlic cloves and some pepper flakes to the mix)

    I use this with my vac sealer. It works great.
    I've had Amish eggs before. They are also good.

    I have NO idea what Pawpaws are! But I like the Jowls. Though it is a bit of work getting to what little meat is on them.

    Looks good Steve, I used to have a co-worker who brought in a huge jar of pickled double yolked eggs about twice a year. It was always a treat.

    Point for sure

    Sorry I’m a little late on this but Steve that looks bangin. We eat eggs in all shapes & forms. We have our own chickens for eggs because can’t stand factory eggs.
    Here is a recipe I’d like to share.

    Smoked Eggs
    12 boiled eggs
    1 c. Water
    1/3 c. Soy sauce
    1/4 c. Liquid smoke (sinful)
    2 tsp. Sugar

    Mix all together in jar then frig for 3-4 days shaking around every day.
    Enjoy!​

    A few people will turn up their nose to them just because of brown color. YEA more for me

    I had myself a few of them today. They came out fantastic. I'm going to make a larger batch soon. If anything. I may put a few jalapenos in with them. Other then that. I think the recipe is very good.
