    I DON'T like them either. Years ago, I was dared to eat one in a pub.............and I failed miserably. It was like eating a vinegar soaked tennis ball - with an eye

    I'm just giving the vinegar a chance to soak right through the eggs on the ones I've done.(been in vinegar about a month)

    I would tend to go for more traditional recipes for presents.
    What about root veg crisps, kale crisps, red onion marmalade, tomato and chilli jam, one or two chutneys?

    Or chilli flakes..
