<p>Our family loves deviled eggs–our gatherings just aren’t complete without them. My grandmother used to make this dish for our get-togethers, but now my daughter, Lucie, has taken over as designated deviled egg chef. We vary the recipe depending on the season–in summer we add fresh tarragon or a tablespoon of fresh minced basil. <em>Makes 24 deviled egg halves.</em>
<p>• 12 extra-large eggs, hard-cooked, halved lengthwise, yolks removed<br />
• About 4 tablespoons mayonnaise<br />
• 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard<br />
• 1 1/2 tablespoons finely snipped chives or dill<br />
• 1 tablespoon chopped sweet pickles<br />
• 1 tablespoon pickle juice<br />
• Salt and freshly ground pepper<br />
• Paprika<br />
• 12 chive or dill sprigs (optional)</p>
<p>1. To prepare filling, mash yolks in a small bowl with a fork.</p>
<p>2. Add mayonnaise, mustard, chives, pickles, pickle juice, salt and pepper. Blend well. Divide filling among egg halves.</p>
<p>3. Sprinkle each half lightly with paprika and garnish with a small chive or dill sprig, if desired. Serve immediately or cover and chill. Serve slightly chilled.</p>
