When The Hunting Has Ceased

One of the oldest traditions of Easter is painting eggs. They are super fun to do with children and look amazing as place settings for Easter dinner. However, the problem is what to do afterwards ...

If you plan on eating your splendid little Easter eggs, then boiling them perfectly is key. Nobody likes rubbery eggs or grey insides.

  1. Fill your pot with cold water about an inch or two above the tops of your eggs.
  2. As soon as your water comes to a boil, remove from heat and let stand for about 15 minutes.
  3. Drain and run through cold water to stop the cooking process.
  4. Stencil, pattern with paper, draw, dye, or paint!

It is also best to use older eggs, as opposed to fresh ones, because they tend not peel as well.

After the hunting has ceased, you can put those boiled eggs to good use and reuse them in tons of our recipes!

Eggs, as we know, are very delicate and when stored can take on all the lovely smells in your refrigerator. In other words, remember to store you precious eggs in an air tight container.

Happy Easter everyone!
