How to Hard-Boil an Egg

If you’re dyeing eggs for Easter, remember to pick up an extra dozen.

To hard-boil eggs, place them in the bottom of a large pan deep enough to fill with cold water one or two inches over the eggs. Place on high heat until the water boils. As soon as the water boils, turn the heat down to a simmer and simmer one minute then turn off heat. Let eggs stand in water 10 minutes then retrieve them from the pot and let them cool and dry. You’re ready to dye!

To prepare dye using regular food coloring, mix 1 cup hot water, 2 teaspoons of white vinegar and enough food coloring drops to make your desired hue. If you are using brown eggs, you will need to use more food coloring.

Hoppy Easter!
