    I've recently got into lacto-fermenting and after several failures have produced several batches of pickies, sauerkraut and just recently, hard boiled eggs.

    I'm looking forward to sharing recipes and processes with like minded people.

    Welcome to the forum.
    That sounds interesting. I look forward to hearing more, especially the eggs. We have more eggs than we can use at the moment.

    Totally unrelated, but wasn't Manassas the site of a Civil War battle? When I saw the name, that's what came into my head.

    Yes, at the beginning of the Civil War, the First Battle of Manassas took place. It was the first battle of the war.

    There was another battle near Manassas later in the war.

    I sampled an egg last night. They have been brining for 3 days now. Tasty, but not sour or salty. I used a culture starter, onion, jalapeño and garlic.

    I think for my next bstch, I'll use the brine from a pickle batch.

    Hi Nelson and thanks for joining SSC!

    I'm a big fan of pickled eggs and so are my boys - I just made a quick Asian pickle yesterday with a few cucumbers and one long chilli sliced up and submerged in apple cider vinegar, a teaspn brown sugar, and pinch of salt - so good on sourdough toast in the morning!
