Once you add the vinegar, it becomes a high-acid food. Just like cucumber pickles would. Although I suppose if you do process your pickled eggs in the pressure canner, they probably won’t get mushy as easily as cucumber pickles do.
I'm not preparing for the end of the world, I'm preparing for the beginning of the new one.
Yes, you can can your own pickled eggs ... I do it every year. My husband likes them really spicy, and you can add slices of hot peppers or some onions. Beet juice will give you a reddish tint in the pickling liquids. They do not have to be pressure canned, that will overcook them. Hot water canning is perfectly fine.
Yeah but they could be used as ninja stars against marauding looters!
anyway that's my plan
If that isn't the perfect T-shirt, I don't know what is.
I hadn’t thought of that. Thanks.
***Does anyone know if one can can their own pickled eggs?***
Put the boiled eggs (peeled) in a quart jar. Pour the boiling vinegar-spice mix over them, put on a sterile lid and make it and make it hand tight, not real tight! then put in boiling water bath for about 10-20 minutes. Cool and watch the lids pop down.
I just made 4 quarts of pickled eggs but just poured the vinegar mix on them, and put them in the refrig. they won’t last long enough to make a long term storage as I will be eating them in just a few days.
***As a Mormon myself we are taught to always be prepared with 1 year food and water and to keep our gas tanks at least 1/2 full.***
As a child on the high plains, my folks we always kept several months of food on hand due to the terrible winter storms.
My uncle visited some people who only had a pound of coffee and enough for about two days( It was summer). He told them to stock up quick as some of the weather conditions could keep them isolated for week or longer.
My recipie is a little different..
12 or more boiled eggs,
2 cups apple vinegar,
1/2 cup water,
1 cup sugar.
1 tbsp mustard seed,
1 tbsp celery seed,
1/2 tas salt,
1 tbsp regular mustard (or spicy mustard)
6 whole cloves
Put part of a cut up onion in the quart jar,
add boiled and peeled eggs,
add more onion.
Then pour in the vinegar spice mix till full.
Add a dash of pepper spices (Tobasco, Daves Insanity Sauce or Cholula hot sauce) or peppers.
Seal the jar and let cool, place in the refrig for a few days before eating.
I have found that a quart will hold about 9-10 eggs so boil extra eggs if needed and this vinegar mix will often fill two quarts with eggs in them.
Ping for later
Thanks. Granny ping.
Thanks for the ping.
