A popular ‘antipasto’ (not really sure what other word to use here) in Pennsylvania is pickled eggs. They’re eggs. They’re pink. They’re a little sweet with a lot of tang, and despite the atrocious aftermath that may result, they are delicious.
We have a beet pickled egg with cardamom and star anise, as well as a curried pickled egg with Indian spices, a jalapeno pickled egg with cumin and oregano, and a tarragon pickled egg with mustard seeds. My favorite is the beet pickled egg.
