Dyed Easter Eggs

When Easter rolls around, don’t miss out on the egg-dying fun. Decorate your eggs in red, blue, green, or whatever color sparks your fancy. Use a clear or white crayon to draw on them before dipping them in the dye.

Tips for Eggs

Instructions

  1. 1Place a rack over a paper-towel-lined baking sheet; set aside.
  2. 2Place eggs in a single layer in a large saucepan with a tightfitting lid. Add enough water to cover the eggs by 1 to 2 inches. Bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, carefully remove eggs to the rack and let sit until cool enough to handle.
  3. 3Pour 1 cup water into a small, nonreactive bowl or mug. Add vinegar and food coloring and stir to combine. For a darker color, add a few more drops of food coloring. Repeat for additional colors.
  4. 4If desired, decorate cooled eggs with crayons or stickers.
  5. 5Using a spoon, dip each egg into the dye, turning to coat evenly. Remove to the rack to dry.
