coming soon, and there will be a lot of eggs boiled and colored.
cover them with cold water, bring them to a nice boil, put the lid on, turn the
fire off and let them sit about 15 minutes. They turn out perfectly cooked. To
remove the shell, I immediately pour the whole pan of eggs into the sink, drain
and add cold water. I peel them under the water and that works well.
nutrients in eggs
with a huge amount of protein in the whites, the whole egg has
antioxidants, vitamins, calcium, iron, phosphorus for your bones, zinc -
that helps wounds and infection They even contain some iodine which is
good for the thyroid.
about the color of eggs - are brown more nutritious?
breed of the hen determines the color of the egg.
COLORED EASTER EGGS
there's no real "recipe", but here's how I do it, the same way my
Mom, Mary Nader, and her Mom did it.
saucepan, place as many papery outer skins of yellow and/or red onions that you
have. Cover with an inch of water. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and
cook until onion skins have colored the water, about 10 minutes.
same method for red cabbage (just chunk it up and barely cover with water),
beets, spinach, etc. Even coffee grounds can be used. Now if you use
canned beets, the dye is ready to go except for adding vinegar. Just strain the
juice out and go from there.
you strain the dye and for every cup of liquid, stir in 1 tablespoon or so
clear vinegar. This sets the dye. Don't worry about adding
too much vinegar - a little more won't hurt.
turmeric colored eggs, place two tablespoons of turmeric in 1-1/2 cups
water. Stir and place in pan. Cook until it starts to boil.
Remove, let cool but don't strain. Add a teaspoon or so of vinegar.
Place eggs in dye, stirring to coat. When you remove the eggs, gently
wipe off the turmeric with a soft cloth or run them very quickly under running
your boiled eggs in. Depending upon how long they sit in the dye (and know
that it takes a lot longer than commercial colors), the eggs made with yellow
onion skins will be pale yellow to dark amber. Red onion skins produce
eggs that are brick/brown red. Red cabbage is the winner: it makes
beautiful teal blue eggs! Turmeric makes the eggs more brilliantly yellow
than the marigolds my dad used to plant in our tiny front lawn. If you
want, you can put the eggs in the dye overnight in the frig.
with 1 Tablespoon each of white vinegar, canola oil and dye of choice
with warm water (enough to cover egg)
quickly drop egg into water, then quickly remove
