Ultra-Violet's Pickled Egg Cookbook. Just another cookbook? Ha! At first glance this book reveals itself to be both shocking and practical. Shocking in that one does not expect to see a purple chicken in apron and high heels -- the nature of which is revealed once you get into the book -- and practical because it has stain resistant glossy covers and is spiral bound, thus allowing it to lay flat, making it ideal for the kitchen. Open the covers and you will find a cookbook like no other. The topic, pickled eggs, is perhaps a little unusual. I had no idea there were so many ways to pickle eggs. The recipes are excellent and they are guaranteed to change your taste for pickled eggs, but it is the presentation which is absolutely delightful. It makes this book worth having if you never pickle a single egg. The anecdotes, historical references and trivia, and the wonderful style in which their story is told that makes this book a winner. You won't be able to keep a smile off your face, perhaps not a tear from your eye and certainly not a giggle from invading your heart, as you read this one.

Beside having great recipes for pickled eggs, this book would make a great gift for anyone living in Missouri or from Missouri. It has many historical facts, along with some funny stories. Happy pickling.

Ultra-Violet's Pickled Egg Cookbook by Violet S. Clayton is a hybrid to be sure. It's 3/4 cookbook, 1/8 storybook, and 1/8 fact book. It pays homage to the elevation of a simple country food - the egg! It is organized into three catefories of pickled eggs (hot & spicy, sweet, and eggs with beets) and the spiral binding makes it especially nice to use in the kitchen. When you need a break from pickling, you can read the short facts about eggs and Missouri. The best however is the tall tales about Ultra-Violet herself. The most positive thing I can say is that I was completely tickled and thoroughly entertained by her antics. And true to this country-style cookbook, it made me feel right at home even though the author grew up during the Great Depression. Maybe the simpler life isn't so bad.

I love this cookbook. I never knew you could do so much with pickled eggs! The stories about Ultra-Violet were entertaining and heartwarming. I also enjoyed all the litte tidbits about the state of Missouri
I love the names of the recipes. I've never much cared for pickled eggs but I'm going to try some of these recipes. If Ultra-Violet's family enjoyed them all those years - they must be good!
