Marjoram Capers - Photo by Mark Smrecek (HobbyFarms.com)

Deviled eggs are a perfect vehicle for herbs, soft or hard. One version I make uses pickled buds from our marjoram bush. The tiny spheres look like a cross between caviar and capers and taste sweet and briny. They’re reminders that herb flowers are both delicious and beautiful. You don’t have to pickle the flowers, though; they’re often delicious straight from the bud.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup marjoram buds
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 T. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar

Preparation
Pack buds in small heat-safe jar. Boil vinegar, salt and sugar, and pour over buds. Refrigerate capped jar and use in place of capers.
