    The ham might say something to pig about cannibalism.

    The summer of my postdoc in Germany, the lab had a picnic, and everyone was supposed to bring something. I decided that deviled eggs would be just the thing, but my supervisor did not recognize the name or understand my description. This really surprised me, both because he had done a postdoc at the University of Georgia and because these are EXACTLY the sort of things I would expect Germans to eat. At any rate, I made them for the picnic, and when he SAW them, he said, “Ach! Gefüllte Eier!” Yes, they eat them, but being much more literal, they just call deviled eggs “filled eggs”.

    Just in passing: You might like to try making your deviled eggs using curry powder instead of mustard. Rave reviews at potlucks I’ve brought them to.

    The origin of the term “deviled” seems to be rather obscure, perhaps intentionally so. It seems that back in earlier times, back before modern refrigeration and food processing standards were developed, one might add a lot of spice and pickles to cover up the flavor of some food that had gone somewhat “off.” That reached its pinnacle in the Chicago meat-packing industry at the end of the 19th Century. They would gather, process, cook, “de-vile” with spice & such, and then can accumulated scrap meat. Hence, “de-viled” ham or whatever. Tasty stuff!

    Actually, it’s the cooking technique. Although, as I think about it I’m not sure deviled eggs should really qualify anymore. At least not the way we make them. The technique is a refernce to a spicy sauce, or just a bit spicy in general (I make deviled turkey using an 1860s recipe and there is nothing spicy about the sauce in the recipe, but it does require you use some cayenne on the turkey itself). Our deviled eggs don’t have any spiciness to them. Not sure too many make them very spicy anymore.

    Last I recalled, the Devil doesn’t do the actual hurling into the fiery pit; that is God’s job. what the Devil does is he leads souls into said fiery pit.
