Easter Eggs

Don’t forget to buy your easter eggs NOW! Giving them a week + in the fridge will help them separate from the edge of the shell so you do not have those pesky hardboiled eggs you pick and pick at.

Now on to how to make the FANCIEST eggs you have ever seen.

You will need:
– 100% Silk ties, cut up
– rubber bands or twist ties
– white eggs, still raw
– 3 tbsp white vinegar
– an old, white sheet, pillow case, or table cloth
– a non-aluminum pot (glass/enamel/steel)
– paper towels
– tongs or spoon
IMG_1895I learned some colors will turn out better then others… But cut your 100% silk ties up
IMG_1898Wrap your egg tightly in the silk tie trying to avoid creases and gaps, gathering at the bottom will help hide and flaw’s of the gathering.
Secure tightly with rubber band or twist tie. (I just used some wire that was about)
Then wrap in the pillow case or sheet cloth securing the same way.
Place Eggs in the pot and cover with water. Heat on the stove and bring it to a boil. Once water start to boil, turn the heat down, add 3 tablespoons of white vinegar and let simmer for 30-40 minutes.
Once the time is up you can remove with with a spoon or tongs and place them back into the carton for cooling.
NOW THE FUN PART, opening the eggs! Its such a fun reveal/ kind of disappointing for my green eggs.
