Default Pickeled Deer Heart

Guys I heard this was pretty good (to those who like pickeled things) so if you have a good recipe for it please share. I would really like to try some this year.

1. I cut it up and boiled it in water with 2 tablespoons brown sugar
2. Slice to thickness and size desired. I like mine cubed
3. Place sliced heart in large jar or crock. I first put down layer of onions then
layer of heart etc. till all heart has been used up. Add some cloves of garlic and Jalapeno to taste,
4. Next prepare the syrup to pour over.
a. Mix 1 cup vinegar with 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar along with
1 tablespoon of pickling spice(can find at local grocer) along with
4 whole cloves
b. After ingredients are mixed, bring them to a boil in a pan and pour over
the meat. Repeat this process till all the meat and onions are covered.
C. Let jar cool down. Then cover jar and place in fridge. Can be eaten in a
day or so, but the longer it sits in fridge the better it gets.

Good Luck on the hunt!

Thanks for the recipe. I've eaten my fair share of heart, usually just done over the coals, but I have to admit I've never thought of actually pickling it! I think I'll go heavy on the Jalapenos for starters just to easy into the idea. ;-)

I did it last year and I need a more flavorful recipe 2 cups cider Vinegar to 1 cup water and 1 tbsp pickling spices. 1 onion which didn't add much to me. I think I am going to try a dill garlic pickle recipe next time and just add cooked sliced heart instead of cucumbers.
