It isn’t the leaves falling from the trees or the crisp morning air that tells me it’s almost hunting season…there’s another scent that drifts into my kitchen at this time every year…
The smell of vinegar and pickling spice. That’s right – it’s time to make pickled eggs for Hubby to take to the cabin. I won’t touch them with a 10 foot pole but according to the guys, I make kick ass pickled eggs. So yesterday, I spent a couple hours slaving (actually they are really easy) over the stove to work my magic.
It all starts with my trusty egg cooker. If you like hard boiled eggs – YOU MUST GET ONE OF THESE! It cooks 7 eggs at a time, and I cooked 4 dozen over the course of the morning…and they all came out perfect. Peeling them is a piece of cake.
Then there are the large jars with the ring garlic bologna in the bottom. A serious must for pickled eggs.
The secret sauce…(which is why my house smelled like vinegar for days)
And Voila – here they are. Done, and ready for pickling in the fridge.
And I will do it all again in 2 weeks for deer hunting.
On a complete side note I have to give you all an update on Bear. Remember back in July when he was really sick and we didn’t think he would make it. Well….he just had another check up at the vet this morning and he said in 10 years he has never seen a dog make such a miraculous comeback. He is amazed. After the appointment he took him in back to show everyone who helped work on him how great he is doing. THANK YOU to our new wonderful vet clinic! It brought tears to my eyes…and tomorrow Bear is able to go bird hunting with Hubby and Montana once again.
