Amish Pickled Mustard Eggs

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!

So far this week I have shared my recipes for Dill Vinegar,   Pickled Sport Peppers Watermelon Rind Pickles, and Chow Chow.

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.
