Coloring Brown Eggs

This is the season that a person usually wants a white egg shell, but today I found the solution to coloring all eggs. Dinosaur Eggs at Our Best Bites.

I've been following this blog a few months now and I hope you enjoy it too.Remember though, do NOT use fresh eggs for hard boiling unless you want a peeling mess. Also, I think the fresh membrane might make this project less successful.

Start aging those eggs. Two weeks to go for Easter.

If the whites stick to your shells when peeling the hard boiled eggs, try using the cold water method. Have a bowl of cold water with a few ice cubes next to your pot. When they're finished boiling (~6 minutes for soft boiled, 12 minutes for hard boiled) immediately pull them out of the boiling, salted water, and slide them in to the bowl of cold water. This seems to separate the membrane from the whites and makes them easy to peel.

I have a friend who, while pregnant, had a long craving for hard-boiled eggs. Okay, so far, so good. However, if a peealed egg had a nip, she'd throw up.

She had a very healthy baby boy, the really good news!
