  1. I started some pickled eggs 2 weeks ago they now have what looks like slime on them are they safe to eat



    I used a 50/50 water and vinegar and they have been in the fridge the whole time thank you for any help you can give me

    That does not look good. What kind of sausage is in with it and did you follow any kind of recipe?
     
  3. it is home made Andouile sausage ,

    2 cups vinegar

    2 cups water

    2 Tbs. salt

    3 Tbs. sugar

    crushed chili  peppers

    onion powder

    garlic powder

    cider vinegar

    I think thats all I put in it

    I think 50/50 vinegar/water does not have enough acid...   personally I use straight vinegar and salt/sugar mix....  figuring the eggs will add water..    check for a government approved recipe and dilution ratio.....

    If I was a betting man, I would wager a guess that the slime is the fat in the sausage dissolving due to the vinegar. I am not by any means an expert, since I have never pickled any eggs and sausage in the same container like that, but I always tend to use more of a 70% vinegar 30% water ration when I pickle eggs. Maybe there is to much water in your mixture. Have you tasted or smelled the mixture to see if it smells off/rancid etc?
     
  6. i have not smelled it yet
