A venerable old-school bar snack-- do you like pickled eggs or scroll past?

I actually love a good pickled egg, and I especially love when the proprietor adds a little tweak to make theirs something special. I cannot remember where it was, but I had pickled eggs with caraway seeds in the broth and it was absolutely fantastic (Amsterdam maybe?). Anyone make their own, and if you do, what makes your pickled eggs special?

I love them.

One of my local pubs does pickled eggs. They used to just have one variety, but now they have upwards of 10.

I have not made my own, although this seems like something I should explore.

Never had one, but I’ll have to try one now.

I bought a jar of the Garner’s brand, and found the eggs nearly inedible. No spices or herbs, only extremely strong and sharp white vinegar. Nobody liked them. I also have an unopened jar of Pandora brand, I hope they will be less extreme.

A lot of Fish and Chip shops in England have a large jar of them by the till. Despite eating frogs and snails in France, Rabbits bollocks in Malta and Burger King in Milton Keynes. I have never tried Pickled Eggs at the local chippie at the top of my road.

Love them. I make the pickled red beet style eggs (PA Dutch style) for Easter and picnics.

Don’t love them but I eat them on occasion. My grandma and mom loved them. I highly prefer the pickled hot sausages over eggs.

A king amongst pickles. I do love a pickled egg. My mum makes them occasionally.

Will see if I can get a jar for Cotts to break Sarky’s duck

Chris "Podge" Pollard has been making "gourmet" pickled eggs for many years.

A lot of chillies generally seem to be involved.

I can take them or leave them and I’ve never tried making them myself. They wouldn’t be popular in our household - Boudicca can’t stand eggs, or more precisely, the white parts of them.

I love pickled eggs, but I have never seen them at a bar before. What areas of the world is this common in?

I do love that bruin cafés in the Netherlands often have hard-boiled eggs available at the bar, with some of the more old school places (though, admittedly, probably not the kind of places a lot of RB folks would want to spend much time at) offering them for free.
