5-Pepper Deviled Eggs

5-Pepper Deviled Eggs


Once upon a time on a show called Good Eats, I made 4-Pepper Deviled Eggs. Why four? Because I feared the world just wasn’t ready for the 5-pepper version. Strong? Yes. But the cool thing about egg-yolks is that they can hold the heat in check so that the more complex flavors of the peppers can come through.

Ingredients
  1. 6 hard boiled eggs, cooled and peeled
  2. 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  3. 1 teaspoon whole pink peppercorns, divided
  4. 1/2 teaspoon whole white peppercorns
  5. 1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  6. 1/2 teaspoon whole green peppercorns
  7. 1/2 teaspoon brined green peppercorns, finely chopped
  8. 1/2 teaspoon green peppercorn brine
  9. 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  10. 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Instructions
  1. Slice the eggs in half from top to bottom. Scoop the yolks into a medium mixing bowl and lay the whites on a serving platter. Sprinkle the whites with the salt.
  2. Place all of the dry peppercorns, except 1/2 teaspoon of the pink peppercorns into a spice grinder and process until ground well. Add the ground peppers, chopped green peppercorns and their brine, mayonnaise and mustard to the egg yolks and using a fork, stir to thoroughly combine.
  3. Place the mixture into a zip top plastic bag and cut a small hole at one of the corners. Pipe the mixture into each of the white halves. Coarsely grind the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of pink peppercorns and use to garnish the top of each egg.
  4. Chill for at least an hour in the refrigerator before serving.

    I know where I can get green peppercorns, but where can I find brined green peppercorns? Or do I just brine them myself with white vinegar, a bay leaf and some mustard seeds?
