"We are unabashedly in love with the Tar Heel State, and every page is designed to be a tribute to where we live." --Our State: Down Home in North Carolina
Our State magazine has an 80 year-old tradition of highlighting, celebrating and documenting everything about the Old North State. People, food, places, traditions, triumphs, tragedies and everything in between has been photographed and written about in this specialty periodical. Our State is a monthly publication and the April 2013 is on newsstands now. Details about the giveaway I promised are at the bottom of this post, just so you don't think I forgot.
One of the articles by News & Observer food writer Andrea Weigl is about deviled eggs. As a Southern lady, I know all about the importance and likeability of deviled eggs at a party. I will admit that I do not own a deviled egg platter of any kind, but I want one. I need one. I have a lot of eggs to hardboil and eat. It is Spring, after all...

Down-Home Deviled Eggs (with a little twist)
Exclusive recipe from Chef Bill Smith of Crook's Corner, Chapel Hill, NC
12 hardboiled eggs
1 T apple cider vinegar
2 T yellow mustard
1/4 t dry mustard
1 T mayonnaise
1/2 t salt
1/4 t black pepper
1 large jalapeno, seeded and minced
1 large rib of celery, minced
1/2 cup minced red onion
Paprika mixed with chili powder to dust the tops
Halve the eggs lengthwise and remove the yolks to a mixing bowl. If any white break, add them to the yolks. Mash the yolks with a fork, then stir in the vinegar, mustards, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. the filling will be dry, I prefer this, but if you don't, add a little more mayonnaise. Fold in the minced vegetables. Refill the white with this mixture. Dust with the paprika-chili powder blend.
Starting today (3/22/13) through Thursday, March 28, you can WIN an Our State magazine swag bag filled with Southern hospitality--the April 2013 issue of Our State, TWO cookbooks and a few extra culinary goodies from Nik Snacks.
