Spice Up Your Diet: Easy and Delicious Turmeric Pickled Eggs Recipe


Welcome food lovers, herb enthusiasts, and curious cooks! Today, we’re diving into the world of pickling with a delightfully tangy and nutrient-packed recipe. What’s on the menu? It’s Turmeric Pickled Eggs! This culinary delight combines the warm, earthy flavors of turmeric, a spice revered for its numerous health benefits and yellow hue, with the quintessential pickled creation – eggs. Bracingly briny, beautifully spiced, and as golden as a summer sunrise, turmeric pickled eggs make a wonderful addition to salads, charcuterie boards or ideal for a quick, nutritious snack.

Ingredients List

For this delectable dish, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 dozen large eggs
  • 4 cups distilled or white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seeds
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced (optional)

Feel free to add chili peppers or cloves of garlic for extra flavor!


  1. First, hard-boil your eggs. Place your eggs in a large pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Then, turn off the heat and cover the pot. Let the eggs stand for 9-12 minutes.
  2. While your eggs are cooling, prepare your pickling concoction. In a large saucepan, combine vinegar, sea salt, sugar, turmeric, peppercorns, and mustard seeds.
  3. Stir the mixture over medium heat until sugar and salt dissolve entirely.
  4. After your eggs have cooled, peel them. Remember, perfection isn’t the aim; what matters is unveiling those protein-packed orbs waiting inside the shell.
  5. Place the peeled eggs and sliced onions into a large glass jar (or divide them between two smaller jars).
  6. Pour the warm vinegar mixture over the eggs, making sure they are fully submerged. Seal the jar.
  7. Now, the hardest part – let the jar sit in your refrigerator for at least three days before digging in!
