A Simple Way to Boil and Pickle Eggs

A Simple Way to Boil and Pickle Eggs

Growing up Mom didn't give us a whole lot of direction in the cooking department.  She was a busy working mom and wife.  She did take the time to teach us just enough that kept us from starving while she was gone.  You know how fast kids can get hungry.   Some of the cooking skills we were expected to know included how to make tea, make tuna for sandwiches, make a grilled cheese, bake cookies, and boil eggs. We also were instructed how to follow a recipe if we needed to. These were the top basics and it got us off to a good start when we became adults.  

Boiling the eggs was easy one because there was basically just one step. I mean really who could mess up?  Well, we all did because we would forget how long they had been boiling and end up with eggs half done.  Leave it to a bunch of kids.  

A Simple Way to Boil Eggs:

Put eggs and enough water in a saucepan to cover the eggs (about an 1 inch over).   Bring to a boil and boil for 15 minutes.  They are perfectly done every time!  

A Simple way to Pickle Eggs:

Now let me tell you about pickling eggs.  Before you say yuck, they are delicious.  I admit though that pickled eggs may be an acquired taste. You see I didn't start eating them till two years ago. I think just the name might of scared me off.  I mean pickled eggs just doesn't leave a pretty picture in your mind.   

Like with everything else though, I've grown up and decided to give weird things another try.  In my old age I now drink coffee, eat mustard greens, and love pickled eggs.  Who knew?  

Really I don't think I can call this a recipe.  It's more of a DIY.  So easy any one can do it!  Even me.  



All you need is a empty jar of pickle bologna and the liquid inside, plus eggs, who knew?


First save the jar that you just finished of red hots or pickled bologna along the pickling liquid inside.  Now boil and peel eggs and let them cool.   


Peeled boiled eggs in a Pickle bologna jar.


Put peeled cooled eggs in the pickling liquid and cover with the lid. I ended up with enough liquid to cover 7 eggs. Store in refrigerator. In about a week you'll have pickled eggs.  Simple and delicious!

Have you tried this method of pickling eggs before?

My Frugal Ways this Past week,What Was On the Dinner Table and My Goals for the Week 8/20/16!





We bought peaches at the Farmers Market this past week. I ended up with 28 pint jars of peaches. We saved a couple of dollars a quart by buying and canning them. 

I completed the Kroger survey that was at the bottom of my receipt for more fuel points. 



We went on a $5.00 date night!  We enjoyed coffee and doughnuts on the Tim Horton's patio while we watched old cars go by.  I found out from the woman in front of us that Tim Horton's has a senior citizen discount!  


We took the grand kids to Stepping Stone Falls (free).   

I was gifted some jalapeno's this past week from a friend.  I hope to use them in salsa this week.  



Menu-What was on the Dinner Table

Monday       Chicken and Dumplings -made with leftover grilled chicken

Tuesday       Hamburger Steak, Potato salad made with leftover mashed potatoes, Green beans (leftover), Fried cabbage

Wednesday   Goulash

Thursday       Leftovers for him - I went out with my friends (one of the friends treated).

Friday            Pork chops, mashed potatoes, and green beans from the garden.

Saturday       Out to eat with our friends (their treat)

Sunday          Leftovers from eating out.


My Goals for this week:

In the Home:


Wash, clean, and put up the like new curtains I bought at a garage sale.

Make salsa.

Make freezer meals.

Family:

On a cooler night have a bonfire with the grand kids.  We haven't wanted one all summer.



Blog:

Write a book review.




What ways have you saved this past week?
