 NOTES : Tootie Notes: This is a standard for us on the 4th of July. I 
 serve in a pretty footed cut glass jar. The red blends with my red, 
 white and blue color scheme plus these go well with bar b que as an 
 added side dish for the meat. Set them out at the last minute-they 
 taste better well chilled. If I have the time, I will set the 
 contained down in the tub of ice with the drinks and other items. The 
 icy container with ice cold eggs, so good. The sweet pickled eggs are 
 good also, but prefer the beet pickled eggs. These look just as well 
 in an old half gallon jar.
