I love hard boiled eggs, and after finding this thread I just knew I had to pickle some. Since I can't peel a boiled egg to save my life, I hard poached 'em and made some experimental jars... I did a batch of the Steak & Eggs with celery (thanks, man!!) and I did a batch with jalapenos, onions, and carrots. Both turned out fantastic! I was so pleased with the way the carrots turned out that I need to do a jar of just them. My next set will be made using chili powder, and then curry powder. Thanks for the inspiration! Once I figure out how to post some pics I'll put 'em up.[/img]

I'm glad to hear I could be of help. Very Happy
And welcome to the ring, mindspike!

I'm not sure what "hard poached" means? Whatever works for ya.
It took me awhile to get the whole peeling thing mastered.
Maybe try the baking soda method on page 5 of this thread.

Thanks for the welcome.

"Hard poached" eggs are just regular poached eggs that have been cooked all the way through instead of letting them stay runny in the middle. 10 min in the poacher does the trick. If you've never seen an egg poacher, it's just a cup or basket that holds the cracked egg above or just resting in a shallow boiling water bath so that the egg is cooked by steam and convection. Talented cooks (eg. people who aren't me) can poach an egg without using a basket. Learning to poach an egg was part of convincing my wife to marry me....

Here's some pics from my first attempt. I've since been informed that I shouldn't recycle store bought pickle jars because the glass is too thin for safe home canning. I also followed some advice on peeling eggs from this thread, and have achieved good results (and much egg salad).

Everything looks good, mindspike!
However, it does look a little odd with poached eggs in your jars. Shocked Wink

I have an egg poacher very similar, except it does 6.

I have never had any issues with store bought pickle or olive jars. Confused

I wasn't have any trouble with the pickle jars, but after investing in some Ball jars, I'm mostly converted. I've been experimenting with flavors to varying degrees of success. Taking MacEggs suggestion of using a base brine for all my flavors, I use 4qts vinegar, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/8 cup salt. I also came up with a "flavor booster" I add to every recipe, equal parts minced garlic, onion powder, and crushed red pepper. Mac's Steak N Eggs has proven to be a big hit, as has my own mustard recipe. The chili eggs I did a while back were not so good, and the pub style recipe I tried didn't suit my taste buds. The photo is from the batch I just did, with my delighted daughter's assistance. Pep Talk has a lemon-pepper base, Vampire Slayer has a BBQ base.

Wow!! That is outstanding, mindspike!!

I am digging all of the different flavours. Nice pic, BTW! Very Happy Enjoy. Very Happy

EDIT: I also like the names you have come up with ... very creative. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, man. The creative names mostly come from my daughter, who just couldn't stand that you had a cool recipe like "Steak N Eggs", and I named things after the main ingredient. ie, lemon-pepper, bbq, mustard.... Oh, there's a typo in my base brine recipe. I portion in 4 cup increments, not 4 quart increments. My bad. This last batch is the largest I've ever done; I generally do only 2 dozen eggs at a time.

Most of my seasonings I just bought from the store, like the BBQ rub and the lemon-pepper. The mustard recipe is mine: mustard-2 parts, ginger-1/2part, coriander-1/2part, turmeric-1part, garlic-1part, onion powder-1part, red pepper-1part. I put the ingredients into a dedicated spice jar by the tablespoon, and then tumble until blended. It's worked pretty well so far.

What I did today could be filed under:

"What the hǝll were you thinking?"

Earlier in this thread on page 2, HERE and here,
there was some discussion about Liquid Crab Boil.

I got my hands on some courtesy of a co-worker.
He drove to Florida over our Christmas shutdown.


I boiled 5 dozen eggs.

One 2L jar got 24 eggs, and an entire 4oz bottle of LCB.
This is called "L.C.B'idness".


The other 2L jar got 24 eggs, a bottle of LCB, a tbs Devil's Dust, and 12 dried pods.
I got these items from Canadian Bacon (Thanks, Rick). Very Happy
I decided to call this "B-G's Ring o'Fire".


An experimental flavour. 2 tbs of Tex-Mex seasoning.


We will wait and see how this experiment turns out. Very Happy

That is totally awesome, dude!! Very Happy
Looks like you have about 6 dozen there ... maybe more.

Tumble each jar once and awhile, just to distribute the seasonings.
I'm quite sure you will enjoy them. Thanks for sharing. Very Happy Very Happy

I'll be real interested to see how those shrimp/crab boil seasonings turn out. I use Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning to make some very good cajun eggs. Of the last bunch, the lemon-pepper turned out very nice indeed. I'm doing more of those right now. The BBQ proved popular with everyone except me. I tried a jar using chicken seasoning, like MacEggs' "Chicken L'eggs" recipe. They turned out really strong. Interesting flavor.

I, too, am very interested to see how they will turn out.
It's been only 6 weeks since I brewed up that batch.
I would like to wait til spring to try them. So, maybe 2-3 more weeks. Maybe longer. Confused
I will keep you posted. Very Happy
