    So, does anyone pickle things other than the usual cucumbers? I was looking for recipes for pickled eggs and beets today, found a whole bunch of great and unusual things. Somebody pickled ring bologna, which they recommend 90 days in the jar before eating...That's a bit strange. Some relatives that own a restaurant are having a pickle contest, which got me thinking about things that can be pickled.

    My favorites, in no particular order:

    *Pickled green beans, lots of garlic

    *Pickled carrots

    *Pickled eggs, with or without beets

    *Pickled beets

    *Mustard pickles

    *Dill pickles!

    I didn't pickle them myself, but pickled quail eggs are awesome! Far richer than chicken eggs.

    Pickled chantrel dinks...
    (with a jalapeno tossed in for good luck)
    And 90 days is the correct waiting period.
    Asparagus a major plus ta toss inta the mix.

    OK, John, try them my way. Roast them on a hot grill. Wait til' they pop open. Take out of shell, put some sauce in shell, put oyster back in for about a minute. Let it broil. Take out and eat on a cracker. Taste great, a little chewy.:cool:;)Man they are good.

    One of God's creatures, John.

    But, you did say you'd try it, "if someone else made them". Do you eat scallups, clams, mussells?

    Sorry John. I have always lived near the Ocean. Dad always fished. He was a professional fisherman in his later years. Seafood has always been greatly loved in my family.

    Do you eat any fish? Bass, catfish, bream, trout?
