I used smaller laying hen eggs because I think that if you are going to eat a pickled egg then it should be something you can eat in a bite. Some people like a big egg so they can hold it and bite it a few times but not me.
In. Love pickled eggs. Where did you buy the brine and what brand? I have always made my own and it is hit or miss.
I would like to skip that process and just use a brine that is already made so I can't go wrong.
And thanks for the tip, I am going to use the blue dye as well. I don't know why but just knowing everyone will be pooping out neon green for a few days makes me smile.
Have a great day and an invisible VU!
I got the pre-made brine from a beer and wine supply store.
It's one of those mom-and-pop places and not a chain. So its their own brand. Totally worth it too because I have no clue how to make a decent brine and it make a huge difference to the taste of the egg.
One thing to notice is that as the eggs absorb the colour the brine clears. At first it was immposible to see through but now when I opened it the brine is like tinted blue water you can see through.
The eggs took all that blue colouring in.
Like I said, next weekend for Thanksgiving I will put these out with turkey etc and be giggling.
