Folks across the countryside will be cooking eggs today, in preparation for
the Family Easter Egg Dying Tradition.
Here are some reminders...
Do not use the eggs that are fresh from the supermarket.
Use the eggs that have been in your refrigerator for about a week...
They will be much easier to peel.
Place the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan.
Cover with cold water...about 1 inch over the eggs.
Bring the water to a boil.
Then turn off the heat and put the lid on the pan.
Set your timer for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, pour off the hot water,
add cold water...even ice cubes...
to stop the cooking process, and avoid overcooking your eggs.
(Here, I'm just letting them dry before putting them back in their cartons)
You are never too old to dye Easter Eggs!
