We're still searching for the recipe for Old Fashioned Horseradish Pickled Eggs for divamom and John. This seems to be a recipe calling for hard cooked eggs pickled in a brine. The list of ingredients on the label included horseradish and sugar. There were no beets or anything that would produce a rosy color. This product can be purchased in Amish country, however as with any specialty item, it is costly. A homemade version of this recipe would be greatly appreciated.
I can't post it here because we don't have permission from that site yet. I just typed in - pickled eggs with horseradish in the search area of our browser and it was one of the recipes - #3 I believe. It contains radishes, which gives it the color. I will try to send it to you via private message now.
I know this isn't too specific but I hope it helps!
My Grandma made the best pickled eggs I have every eaten... There was no written recipe, but this is what she told me:
Grandma's pickled eggs
After hard boiling and peeling your eggs, put them in a large jar. Add to this,(in layer with eggs) sliced onion, LOTS of garlic cloves, peppercorns,sliced fresh or bottled horseradish (she used about 3 heaping tablespoons per gallon)...
Heat up half white vinegar and half water (depending on how many eggs and what size jar...you want them covered)...and pour over the eggs and ingredients in your jar. Let cool and then cover. Let sit in refrigerator for 3-4 days to "pickle" before eating. Do not add more vinegar than water...your eggs will turn out rubbery.
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest of men
