Amish Pickled Mustard Eggs marinate hard cooked eggs in a savory brine for a flavor somewhat like deviled eggs.
Amish Pickled Mustard Eggs is my recipe of the day for the blogging event Farmer’s Market Week. A ton of food bloggers have been doing joint postings all week long. And we wrap things up today. I hope you have enjoyed following along!
Amish Pickled eggs can come in several types. This one uses mustard to add flavor. If you haven’t had this type before, it tastes similar to a hard boiled deviled egg.
I have used fresh turmeric in this to keep the brine from clouding the way adding prepared mustard does. You can find fresh turmeric in many stores now. But push to shove, an Indian or Pakistani market always has it. They will have mustard oil as well. But if pressed, you can heat mustard seed in oil until it is infused.
I only did a half dozen since you really don’t want to keep these indefinitely. As eggs sit in the brine over time, the white will become rubbery. So better just to make a few and then another batch later if you need.
Enjoy your eggs with salads, by themselves, or perhaps even for a lovely colored deviled egg.
