A Simple Egg Dye Recipe

It has been a tradition in this country to color and decorate hard boiled eggs for Easter. I would suggest to use white eggs to see the color better. You will need 3/4 cup of hot water, 1 tablespoon white vinegar and a few drops of food coloring. Make sure you have a few small deep containers for different colors. Before dipping the hard boiled eggs in the dyes, you can write names, draw figures on the shells first. The drawings and letters will be visible when the dyes dried. For darker colors, you will need to leave the eggs in the dyes longer, or even overnight.
