Ingredients for Dyeing Easter Eggs with Food Coloring
- Hard boiled eggs
- Food coloring
- 1 tablespoon distilled vinegar, for each color
- 1 ½ cups boiling water, for each color
Instructions for Dyeing Easter Eggs with Food Coloring
Gather one jar or juice glass for each color.
To each container, carefully add 1 to 1 ½ cups boiling water. Do not overfill and remember to allow room for the egg.
Stir in 1 tablespoon vinegar.
Add 6 to 10 drops of food coloring into each container and stir.
Using a spoon, lower a boiled egg into each container. Allow the eggs to sit for 5 minutes or more. The longer the egg rests in the dye, the darker the color will be.
Remove the eggs and place on a wire rack over paper toweling until completely dry.
