Ukrainian Recipes: Uncle Steve's Pickled Eggs

Print Recipe  

Share |

Freshly made pickled eggs
This recipe is by my uncle, Steve Huk, and is listed in "Raising the Roof", a fundraising cookbook for 2001 from St. George the Great Martyr Ukrainian Catholic Church in Oshawa, Ontario.

6 eggs
1 cup vinegar
½ cup water
1 tbsp mixed pickling spice
      ½ tsp salt
1 clove garlic
1 tsp - 1 tbsp brown sugar (adjust to taste)
1 small onion, sliced (do not boil)

- Boil the 6 eggs: put eggs in pot, and cover with cold water. Bring to a rolling boil, shut off and let stand 45 minutes. Shell.
- While eggs are boiling, in separate pot, boil all ingredients (except eggs and onions), 3 minutes.
- Place eggs and onions in clean glass jar; add liquid ingredients. Cover; place in refrigerator for at least 24 hours before using. Longer is better.

Note: sometimes, a chemical reaction will cause the garlic to turn blue or green (see closeup). This is normal, and perfectly safe to eat. And, the eggs will turn brown during the pickling stage; again, perfectly normal and safe to eat.
