Eggs for Easter

Decorating Easter eggs has become a long lasting family tradition for many households across America. Traditions can become the essence of your family and maybe you would like to begin a new tradition of decorating Easter eggs. If you have never decorated any eggs before, you may need to know how to hard boil the eggs. The best part about decorating hard boil eggs is that they do not need to go to waste! You can include your hard boiled eggs into your favorite recipe. 


How to hard boil eggs:

  1. Place the eggs inside a kitchen pot on your stovetop. Let the eggs lay flat on the bottom of the pot. 
  2. Next, completely cover the eggs with cold water. 
  3. Turn your stovetop on high and bring the water to a boil. As soon as the water begins to boil, remove the pot from the heat. 
  4. You will need to cover the kitchen pot with a lid and set your timer for approximately fifteen minutes.
  5. After the fifteen minutes, drain the water from the pot using a strainer and rinse the eggs in cold water.
  6. By now, your eggs should be cool enough for you to touch. 
  7. Dry them off and begin decorating or place them in the fridge until you can decorate them. 
    • Keep in mind that hard boiled are only safe at room temperature for less than two hours and you will have one week to eat them safely as recommended by The United States Department of Agriculture.
