Thread: Pickling vinegar

  1. #1

    Pickling vinegar

    Not exactly stalking related I know
    just after advice on the best vinegar to use for pickled eggs and beet root
    the wife said some pickled eggs we bought recently were in a brown type
    vinegar rather than a white pickling vinegar
    so thought I'd ask on good old Sd for the more experienced members advice
    yours thoughts / suggestions on what works for you will be most welcome
    regards pete

    Always pickle in hot white vinegar then add the spices to taste, eggs will colour in malt vinegar which is purely asthetic.

    I buy Tecso stuff which comes in a handy large sized jar for that very purpose
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care

    Pete see Jamie over Frome Market on the Veg stall he will have some or will get you some,either white or brewed and if you like it spicy then pop down toWalcot st. in bath to the 'Harvest' shop they do big jars that you just scoop out as much as you want.

    I'd encourage you to try sweet spiced vinegar on a few beets:

    I put in less cloves and sometimes use a bit of cider vinegar to partially replace the white wine vinegar for a different taste.

    Something like this whizzed together in a processor with warm pitta bread


    • 2 large whole beetroots roasted or boiled
    • Small handful of fresh garden mint
    • 1 clove garlic - We cheat and use lazy garlic in a jar
    • 1/2 teaspoon finely ground sea salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin - Not essential

    • Juice of half a lemon
    • 2 tablespoons real egg mayonnaise OR plain (unsweetened) yoghurt
