Ok, a few questions:

Can I throw my boiled eggs in with some pickles or do they need to be in just the juice? In other words, will the pickles be ruined by sharing the same jar as the eggs?

If the pickles and eggs cannot peacefully coexist inside the same jar will the pickles keep if I separate them from the juice and put them in another container?

Would this work with sweet pickles or bread and butter pickles (LC of course.) Anyone tried that?

How long do the eggs need to sit in the pickle juice before you can eat them?

I can answer this one... It won't take but a few hours to flavor the eggs...but more time = more flavor.

O.k. good. Any idea how long is too long to leave them in? Someone mentioned the texture getting rubbery at some point? I'm thinking rubbery pickled eggs=

Losing with pickled eggs!

Just a note, or I should say a discovery!!!!--I've been eating two pickled eggs a day and they are the beet juice kind. They are sooo purple, the yolk even starts to turn. I weighed myself this morning and lost 6 pounds this week because I have a June 1st goal that I want to reach. So, I'm thinking that if I make them myself, with splenda--instead of sugar, and not eat the beets, then they would be totally carb safe for me to eat. I just dont think it is possible to get the exact carb count when soaking them in the beet juice! However-- I am proof that you CAN LOSE when you eat them that way. I'm not eating the beets that come with them by the way. They are the high light of my day--I'm not kidding you! They aren't sweet, just a great flavor! One egg and water gets me through till my 12:30 lunch.

We eat them in the UK. Don't colour them with beet juice though. Just HB eggs and vinegar. I love them.

I had some green olives at a cafe a few weeks ago and did a carb count on them. Saw where they aren't bad in moderation. And, I love them. Read this thread made me think. Wonder if putting a couple of boiled eggs in that juice would be ok ..many re: health and not getting sick from spoilage?

so, I have seen them at the gas station next to the pickled pigs feet all my life and it never in a million years entered my mind to actually eat one!

how do you eat them? do you slice them up or just take a big bite out?

That's hilarious! I think if I saw them next to pickled pigs feet I'd be running the other direction too. Yuck!

I just eat them like I would eat a hard boiled egg. Stick in mouth, bite down and chew.

Grew up with them too, all the local stores (and the bar) had them along side the various other pickled items such as pigs feet, shanks, bologna, sausages and mixed vegs.

I always loved those hot pickled veggies. Especially the cauliflower. I've tried pickled pigs feet and was a bit taken aback by the texture. Same is true of the texture of beef tongue. I'll pass on both but they're not awful.

How do I eat a pickled egg? Just like Minnas said.
