Over the past few days, the bad weather has left me listening to local radio in order to avoid roads blocked by snow. Tonight, on that local radio station, this was the phone-in topic announced-

At what age should children start eating pickled eggs?

:lol:

I'd say 18 months is fine.

This is an important question for parents to face, Lurker. I don't think you can rush into snap decisions like that.

I spent 50 minutes and 10 seconds pondering the issue, during which time I realized the only way to be sure was to go to Poly and take a poll. I'm only reporting the results.

I got one for you: Why can I never get more than half way through the film 'Magnolia' ?

A: because it's a shitty movie.

Hmm, isn't everyone's first pickled egg experienced in the pub? There are existing controls for this kind of thing

I had my first Pickled Egg in a packet of Salt and Vinegar crisps in the Retreat pub in Reading aged 18 and it didn't do me any harm*.


*although some may disagree.

If you would stop salting your eggs in England so much, you would have enough salt for the roads.

Pickled egg, salted crisps. Stjoepit.

"Preparation
After the eggs are hard boiled the shell is removed and they are submerged in a solution of vinegar, salt, spices, and other seasonings."

Because that's what pickling is.

Nobody can be expected to expect Drekkus to have knowledge.

To be perfectly honest, anything other than the vinegar might as well be omitted because it'll make no difference to the taste. They might as well claim angel's tears as an ingredient.

I think its important to introduce pickled eggs early. Theres nothing wrong with giving your kids some watered down pickled egg with sunday lunch. It helps them to develop a sensible attitude to eggs so they enjoy eggs responsibly when they are adults

Such wisdom! Did you vote in the Poly poll?

All very well in theory, and probably works in France with pickled Frogspawn, but you'll still end up with gangs of teenagers down hanging round the park necking Chip Shop sized jars of picked eggs unless we tackle the underlying culture of binge egging.

And you don't even want to know what's in a black market egg.

Research has shown that kids given eggs early by their parents are much more likely to become oologists in adulthood.

Are these green eggs ? I hear the kids prefer them with ham.
