Turmeric-Pickled Deviled Eggs

Yum

What a beautiful color this tangy turmeric brine makes for these deviled eggs! A great-tasting smooth filling, that has a touch of curry, transform regular deviled eggs into something more appetizing and interesting. 

Ingredients:

- 2 cups water
- 1 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 Tbs ground turmeric
- 2 tsp. salt, divided
- 8 to 12 boiled eggs, peeled
- 3/4 tsp. curry powder
- 1/4 tsp. cumin or garam masala 
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise 
- 3 Tbs sour cream
- 1 Tbs yellow mustard
- 2 Tbs fresh chopped chives, divided

Combine 2 cups water, vinegar, turmeric, and 1 teaspoon of salt in a bowl or large jar. Add eggs and chill 4 to 8 hours (or overnight). The longer you leave the eggs marinating in the brine, the more vibrant the color gets. Drain eggs and pat dry. 

Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add curry powder and cumin or garam masala (which is what I used), stirring constantly until fragrant; about one minute. Cool. 

Cut eggs in half cross-wise and carefully remove yolks. Place yolks in a mini food processor. Cut a sliver off each rounded bottom of egg white (so eggs will sit flat). Add mayo, sour cream, mustard, and remaining 1 teaspoon salt to the food processor. Pulse until smooth. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of the chives to the processor and pulse until combined. Divide filling evenly among egg whites and top with additional chives. Enjoy! If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
