The Old Tradition on dying eggs on Easter just got a whole lot cooler! haha.
These are just the shells of the eggs! We carefully poked a hole in the bottoms and tops of each egg and blew the egg out to use for scrambled eggs and omelets. So You Wont Be eatting Dyed Egg :)
I bought the Silk Ties at Goodwill for $1.00 each!! Make sure you get 100% Silk!!
Also I hollowed out the eggs I used so I could Keep them! :)
What you Need:
Raw Eggs (I blew the yolk out of my eggs so I could Keep the dyed eggs... use the eggwhite and yolks for cooking :)
Glass or enamel pot
Silk ties.. again Make sure you get 100% Silk!!
3 Tablespoons of white vinegar
Cut silk into a square (or a piece) large enough to wrap around a raw egg.
Wrap a raw egg with a piece of silk, making sure the printed side of the material is facing the egg. Silk can still be used if it doesn't fit perfectly around egg.
Place the silk-wrapped egg in a piece of white sheet, pillowcase, or old tablecloth and secure tightly with a twist-tie.
Place the eggs in pot and fill the pot with water to cover eggs completely. Then, add three tablespoons of white vinegar
Remove eggs from water with tongs or spoon and let cool.
Remove silk from cooled egg.
For shiny eggs, wipe with vegetable oil.
