Finally Some Sun! Pickled Eggs


Finally Some Sun!-
We had our first mostly sunny days in several weeks. The inversion is FINALLY gone! Woo hoo! Clean air, and about 34 today, so the girls were out most of the day in the garden. They don't see to mind the crunchy snow as much as the powder. Probably keeps their legs warmer. I couldn't get stupid blogger to left indent :(

Pickled Eggs-
I made some pickled eggs today and added some sliced jalapenos! Spicy! Someone was selling some like this at a flea market last year, great idea. No I just need to wait a day or two...

I have a friend that makes pickled eggs. Then sells them to the bars. I guess people eat a lot of them.

They're great when you have lots of your own eggs!

You know, I've never made pickled eggs, even when we've got eggs coming out of, well, you know where, in the summer time. Maybe I'll remember to this season. But probably not :)

Hubby wants me to recycle the pickled beet juice to do this, but the chickens are not giving me enough eggs this winter.

Glad your girls got to get out and stretch their legs finally!
The eggs look good, I've never thought of adding jalapenos. :)

Kristina, I found adding 4 extra hours of light REALLY helped their egg production.

What a good idea - like Carolyn, when my girls are finally laying daily, I will have to remember this - and I like recycling pickled beet juice!

Good idea!
