Thread: Pickled Eggs & Beets

    Default Pickled Eggs & Beets

    I semi-hard boiled 8 ~ 9 large eggs, peeled and added to the a large jar
    (46 Oz) of Vlasic Kosher Dill pickle juice, with around 12 Oz of Harvard
    sliced beets.

    They rested in the fridge now for 3.5 weeks with an occasional shake.

    They turned out pretty good, with a bit of Dijon mustard, and a little
    more salt.

    They are not rubbery as a few people thought they might be based on age.
    I think that's because I slightly under/hard-boiled the eggs. The
    consistency was great.

    I will try it again in the future, but I think I will try garlic dill
    and add a few red chilies next time, as well as some sliced white onions.

    Thanks for the inspiration Omelet. I would have not reused the juice, or
    tried using it in this way without your earlier posts. Normally I just
    pitch it down the drain.

    It did make a rather tasty, inexpensive snack (grade A large are $.98 a
    doz), with no effort involved other than waiting to open :-)

    bob, save the pickle juice if you make bread use it in lieu of the liquid.
    Works esp. well with rye bread.

    You make me smile even bigger :-) Unless I want to make a "beet" bread,
    I wouldn't add them... wait a minute.. another experiment to write down

    Cyber... I hope not, I actually had 5 eggs, and about the equiv of 2
    small/med beets. And "I" still have no gassy type issues. Maybe the
    pickling made a difference, or possibly it delayed reactions.

    But I do have the Imodium (sp?) stuff for any "issues" that might
    develop :-)

    / I also have outside work to do as soon as the rain stops tomorrow
    morning (assuming it stops), so it should not bother anyone , in any case.

    I didn't read the whole thread, just the subj. I like both eggs and
    beets. Hope you get some good work done tomorrow.

    Actually he said Harvard Beets... I wonder if Bob made his own or they're a
    jar of store bought. Harvard Beets are in a thickened and spiced sauce,
    usually contains some butter too... I like them a lot but have never tried
    to blend them with any liquid, so I'm wondering if the sauce will dissolve
    or clump into something disgusting. Why pray tell would anyone choose
    Harvard Beets to use in pickled eggs, they're a lot more costly then plain
    old canned beets too.

    Thanks for the attention. I did use the jar of Harvard beets. I don't
    have a response on the juice, as that went down the drain, but you are
    causing me to consider what I'll do with the next jar.

    The choice was based on the fact they were already here when I decided
    to pickle the eggs. Simple. I just am sad I didn't decide to add onion.

    Any good/nice inputs I'm willing to listen to brooklyn1.

    I'm glad it worked out for you Bob. :-)
    I made a second batch after I ate the first one and am still snacking on
    those. I made 18.

    They do seem to keep a LOT better and longer than just hard boiled eggs
    and they are handy!

    I'm starting another batch of Canadian Bacon today so there will be 2
    one gallon brining jars in the Hobart this week. I'm going to brine for
    5 days this time. And in the meantime, I'll be cutting up more of that
    dead Mimosa tree, plus the downed Mimosa branches I cleaned up from the
    neighbors yard.

    It's gotten good ratings so far from friends, family members and my
    pharmacist. <g>

    The meat is waiting in the jars (under refrigeration of course!) and the
    brine is cooling...

    Dinner tonight however will be a grilled rib eye steak as they were on
    sale for $3.99. I bought two 1" thick ones. I'll serve it with a simple
    side salad with romaine lettuce and some mixed sprouts. Maybe some
    sliced black olives.

    For pickled eggs I'd use only the canned beet juice, it's really just for
    color... use the beets for another purpose. Pickled beets are fine with
    onion but pickled eggs with onion is TIAD. Pickled beets with eggs is also
    TIAD... I like pickled beets but I don't want them tasting and smelling of
    boiled eggs. I hope someone is writing down all these TIAD combos in the
    Big Book.

    Thanks for your input, but there was no added taste of eggs to the
    beets. But I did like them pickled , even if they started out as
    straight Harvards. Next time, I'll either roast my own, or use pickled
    beets.

    I'll use my previous idea for the next test.

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Doh! Now I know what to do with my leftover pickle brine. (gallon
    jars from Costco) The only other use I knew of was Homer Simpson
    drinking it at Moe's Tavern and getting ill afterwards.

    I just use the beet juice. The beets got steamed, then treated with
    butter, dill weed and salt free lemon pepper and served to dad. He loves
    them and I'm not much of a beet fan, altho' I adore beet GREENS! ;-d

    Agreed the juice is just for color, and it's pretty traditional.

    Next time I prepare red swiss chard, I'm considering using the very red
    juice that results from that as the next colorant to add to the brine.

    I'm also wondering how good pickled chard stems (not the leaves!) would
    be? I have pickled Okra successfully using commercial pickle brine so I
    have to wonder.

    I'm also wondering if any other vegetable juices would be fun to dye the
    eggs a color other than pink.

    Think green eggs and ham. <g> I'm wondering if spinach juice would work
    for that? Or what to use for yellow or purple? I'm thinking along the
    line of Easter eggs here. <g>
