People, that’s a pickled egg. #Food #Spring

We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. ~ C. S. Lewis #quote

Tis the season of eggs.  Eggs laid.  Eggs hatching.  Candy eggs.  Colored eggs for Easter baskets.

And pickled eggs.  Have you heard of them?  My childhood in northeastern Pennsylvania was made purple-y fabulous because my father prided himself for making the best Pennsylvania Dutch pickled beets and eggs in the world. We aren’t Pennsylvania Dutch but I have no reason to doubt him on this important matter. Every so often I get a craving for pickled eggs but since he lives 3,000 miles away, I have to make them myself.

This recipe for Pennsylvania Dutch Pickled Beets and Eggs may be the second best pickled eggs in the world.

I just learned that there are a variety of pickled eggs.  Have you eaten pickled eggs?  What’s your favorite way to enjoy eggs?  Or what is your favorite regional food?

Happy weekend dear friends ~~~~~~~~ Angie Mc

  1. I have heard of them, yours are lovely! I’ve never had them though. I don’t care for sour things, vinegar-y or pickle-y things – not even while pregnant, lol. I didn’t know they had sweet to them – temptress! 🙂

    • LOL! It’s a privilege to tempt you into the world of pickled eggs 🙂 Looking at other recipes, there do seem to be some pickled eggs that aren’t sweet. Not sure I’m digging the idea of them 🙂

  2. Oh my goodness this brings me down memory lane. My grandmother made pickled beets and eggs every year. How I miss her! We are of German heritage as well (not Pennsylvana Dutch though). I hadn’t realized this was a German thing.

    i haven’t had these since I was a child. I wonder if my family would like them? Hmmmm …
