How to Make Perfect Easter Eggs

Many of us will be dyeing Easter eggs this week. So, we thought you'd like the perfect recipe for Easter eggs from the pros at McCormick. Plus, we have some great tips for creative dyeing techniques.

  1. Gently place eggs in single layer in large saucepan. Add enough cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. Cover. Bring just to boil on high heat. Remove from heat. Let stand 15 minutes. (Adjust time up or down by 3 minutes for each size larger or smaller.) .
  2. Pour off hot water and rapidly cool eggs by running them under cold water (or place in ice water) until completely cooled.
  3. Mix 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 teaspoon vinegar and 10 to 20 drops food color in a cup to achieve desired colors. Repeat for each color. Dip hard-cooked eggs in dye for about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon, wire egg holder or tongs to add and remove eggs from dye. Allow eggs to dry.
