I did 3 small batches this year and they were done *quickly* because they're all for eating! :O) Just wanted to show you that I actually learned something this year... if you put some white vinegar in the boiling water, the food coloring is so much more intense!!! Why didn't anyone ever tell me that?! Here's the 1st batch:

Happy Easter! the Easter Bunny didn't make it here, BTW. :p

RE: Easter Eggs

Beautiful!! It used to say to use vinegar when they had those little "pills" you dissolved years ago. Might not tell you that any more! Did you use a white marking pen?

Those are really pretty. Really vivid colors!

Easter bunny didn't come here either (probably thought I had more than enough bunnies in this house. LOL)

hugs, Karen

They came out beautiful!
I'll have to try the vinegar when boiling the water...I usually add it TO the water w/the dye! Thanks for the tip.
I agree they are too beautiful to eat.

RE: Easter Eggs

yup... I have always added vinegar to the food coloring water, and for many years I have cleaned the eggs with vinegar on a cotton ball BEFORE boiling. But I've never added vinegar to the boiling water, and I suspect it made the difference. Although I didn't try to dye any that hadn't been boiled w/ vinegar to compare, so maybe they're just good eggs. lol!

I'm thinking of an egg salad made w/ green olives on homemade pumpernickel. :O)

RE: Easter Eggs

Jeanne, I don't know WHY there's no pic anymore! I didn't delete or change anything! I panicked because my yahoo acct got hacked the other day so I figured my photobucket acct got hacked too... but I just checked and everything looks ok. I have no idea why the pic isn't showing here.

I'm sad that I didn;t get to see your pretty eggs.
It sounds like they were gorgeous.

I haven't dyed eggs in recent years, but will have to remember the vinegar in the boiling water trick. I've always used vinegar in the dye pots in the past.

Sorry I missed the pix.
