a little story about Dyed  Easter Eggs

Years ago when my granddaughter and her friend were much younger we had a fun-filled afternoon of dying Easter eggs.

We sat up a plastic covering on the floor,arranged all our hard boiled eggs and cups of dye.

My glass of wine sitting close by.

The colors of red on the plastic after wine spilled.

After we finished we loaded up the car and went back to my daughters to share our creations.

Months later on a very hot summer day, a terrible odor was perpetuating from my car.

Upon investigating, two eggs were found and very quickly disposed of.

Hard Boiled Eggs easy to peel has too me felt like a game of Russian Roulette. Sometimes they were perfect , other times they made great egg salad Open-mouthed smile

I have used old eggs, new eggs, baking soda, salt OR vinegar in the water

Nothing seems too matter.

So each time I boil eggs I either have perfect deviled eggs that peeled like easy peasy. Or I just use in salads.

Hempy the Hamster loves them anyway he gets them.

My secrets that work sometimes.

  1. Eggs must not be fresh (Use Old Ones)
  2. Don’t let them boil forever, bring too boil and let sit 15 minutes.
  3. After cooking, let the eggs rest in an ice-bath to “shock” them.

Say a little prayer…Please my little eggs “Peel for me”
