Egg Jewels

When I was looking for something to put on my blog a found this cool way to color eggs.  I call them Egg Jewels.

Colored Eggs

Hardboil your eggs normally, then cool.  Roll the eggs around on a hard surface to crack them.  You don’t want to crack them too hard – you still want the shell to stay on the egg.  You want a nice overall cracked look.

Set out several mugs for various colors.  Put some gel food coloring into each mug.

Add water to each mug and stir until it’s all mixed.  Gently place an egg into each mug, making sure they are covered completely.  Let them sit in the fridge for several hours or overnight.
