We've eaten a lot of the produce from the garden fresh this summer, but I'm still trying to can things too. I was hoping to can massive amounts of tomatoes in all form, but have been struggling with what I think may be blight on the fruit of my larger tomatoes. Probably as a result of all the rain we've had. Regardless, I was able to find enough tomatoes and jalapenos to make a batch of salsa.
I also decided to try to make pickled eggs. We have some excess eggs, and I thought maybe the boys would like them. They seem to like all other things pickled. I confess that I have never eaten a pickled egg. They always look so.....creepy....floating around in there. Like something you'd see in a curiosity cabinet from 1911 on dusty shelves next to jars of double headed snakes and an octopus brain.
Readers - have you ever eaten a pickled egg?
