HOW TO MAKE RED-SHELLED EGGS

RED-SHELLED EGGS
I just called my mom yesterday and asked her how to dye the eggs red. Red eggs are usually prepared for celebration in the Chinese culture. Whether to celebrate birthdays, baby’s one-month celebration, weddings, etc, you will see these red round eggs. Red eggs represent happiness and renewal of life. I prepared these for Fiorina’s birthday today. This was my first time making red eggs and more to come I believe :)

HOW TO MAKE RED-SHELLED EGGS
 
What you will need:
  • Hard-boiled white/brown eggs will work
  • 1 tsp of vinegar - this will help the color clings on to the shells of the eggs
  • ¼ Cup of hot water
  • 25 drops of red food coloring
  • Cooling rack with plate lined with paper towel underneath
Instructions:
  1. In a glass bowl, mix hot water, vinegar and food coloring.
  2. Few at a time, put the eggs in a bowl and use a metal spoon to spoon the red liquid onto the eggs, turning to make sure color evenly coats the eggs, you need to be patient and continue to spoon it over as you turn, this may take about 2-3 minutes or longer
  3. Place the dyed eggs on the rack to drain. They will dry off in few minutes, but don't be tempted to touch them yet. I would even leave them overnight in the refrigerator
