Guide To Pickled Quail Eggs. Quail eggs have soft outer shells with tough inner membranes. While the eggs may be peeled like a normal chicken egg, removing the outer shell makes it easier to then remove the inner membrane. The eggs peel easier if they are about 1 week old.
25 boiled quail eggs, 1 1/2 cup vinegar, 1 cup water, 3/4 teaspoon dill seed, 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, 3 teaspoons salt, 1/4 teaspoon mustard seed. 1/2 teaspoon onion juice, 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic. For hot pickled quail eggs add 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper or any Louisiana Hot Sauce. For fire hot add more red pepper or hot sauce. Find live quail, quail eggs and Quail Egg Recipes.
