Need Pickled Egg Recipe
After reading about pickles, thought eggs would be good too! Saw lots of recipes on the internet but I trust my JUDD buds to give me their best one!!
Hope someone has a good one for me!
I'm very partial to pickled eggs flavoured with star anise, so quite a lot depends on your taste in these things. :)
I make up a pickling vinegar flavoured with a little orange peel, star anise, coriander and white mustard seeds, with maybe a little dried red chilli. I bring it up to boil then let it cool and mature.
I boil and peel my eggs. I heat up the pickling vinegar, pour it over them and leave them to mature for a few days before eating.
A plain, slightly sweet-spiced version that's popular in the UK:
12 hard-boiled eggs
2 UK pints (40 floz which is 2 US pints + 1c, I think or 1.1 l) of vinegar (white malt or cider)
½ oz (15g) ginger
½ oz (15g) black pepper
½ oz (15g) allspice (or a blade of mace, some bruised cinnamon stick)
Bring all of the pickling vinegar ingredients to a boil and then reduce to a gentle simmer for 10 minutes.
If you don't have any time to mature the vinegar, you can use at once (but it is better for maturing). If you're maturing it, bottle and put away for several weeks.
Hard boil and peel your eggs. Place eggs in a suitable crock or large jar.
I usually pour the vinegar over the egg while it's hot but other people are happy with using it when cool. Whatever you do, seal the jar.
Leave to mature for 4 weeks.
I like the US recipes for pickled beetroot eggs so will look out for anyone posting one of those. :)
I have always wanted to try Chinese tea eggs! Here's a recipe:
Note: cracking the eggs after boiling and before immersing in tea/soy solution will result in a beautiful crackled appearance. :) One recipe I saw said that peeling them completely before soaking in tea/soy gave them much more flavor.
Once your hack is over, let's agree to try this recipe out and see what we think. :shake:
Sounds good to me!
