Turmeric-Pickled Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs get way more interesting when the eggs are pickled in a tangy brine that also dyes them a lovely color. The brine features turmeric, an orange-fleshed root that lends the eggs golden color and a peppery taste that’s matched by curry flavors in the filling. The longer the eggs marinate in the brine, the firmer they become and the more vibrant the color gets. If you’d like a tangier flavor, use some of the brine to loosen the filling instead of water. To update the look of these eggs, we cut them in half crosswise instead of lengthwise; you’ll need to slice a tiny sliver off each end so the egg halves won’t wobble on the platter.
