Introduction: Peter Piper Pickled Eggs
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers;
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked;
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?
The ANSWER: They're right here!
What you will need:
6 hard boiled eggs
1 jar pickled Jalapeno peppers- 8 oz
1 jar pickled red and green Cherry peppers- 8 oz
Assorted fresh vegetables and herbs- cleaned and trimmed. I used celery, green onions, carrots and cilantro.
1 quart Mason jar or zip baggy
Empty the peppers into bowls. Save the juice to pour over the top.
Start layering with the vegetables, then eggs, pickled hot peppers, more vegetables, a little chopped garlic, a couple more eggs, etc.
Just about any fresh vegetable will work in this recipe. Asparagus, green beans, zucchini, peeled garlic cloves, mushrooms, etc.
When the mason jar is full, pour the reserved pepper juice over the top so the eggs are totally covered. If you don't have enough juice, top it off with any oil vinegar dressing you have on hand. Just plain white vinegar works too.
Seal the jar and put it in the back of your refrigerator for one full week. Remind yourself that immediate gratification is highly overrated.
Mark your calender. If you aren't familiar with Oldtimers' syndrome, you'll learn all about it someday. Hopefully later than sooner.
I'll be back in a week to share some pickled pepper egg ideas that Peter Piper never dreamed of. Please stay tuned.........
Updated picture: This is one hb egg marinated in white vinegar and green food coloring for 1 day. It's already turning green and tastes great! I'll be back after more experimenting.
