Coloring eggs for Easter is always fun and there is no need to buy a kit you probably have everything you need in your kitchen.
Recipe type: Appetizer, Main Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6 servings
  • For each color you want you'll need:
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon food color (I use concentrated gel colors, any food color will work, you may need to add more for the desired color)
  • I suggest using a 2 cup container so there is room for each egg in the cup. I use 16 oz wide mouth glass canning jars.
  1. I started with 6 eggs, hard-boiled. I have lots of info on hard-boiled eggs, my preferred method is to cook them in the pressure cooker.
  2. I used 6 colors, red, orange, pink, yellow, blue, and green.
  3. In each jar, I placed the hot water, vinegar, and food coloring, I gently lowered an egg on a spoon into each container be careful not to splash the egg into the color to avoid a huge mess. Since there is plenty of space in the glass, it was mess-free.
