Creating beautiful and colorful eggs is a rewarding and fun activity for families to do together. When you use McCormick® Food Colors & Egg Dye you can blend your own favorite colors or use our suggestions for jade, raspberry or watermelon.
1. Gently place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan. Add enough cold water to cover eggs with 1 inch of water. Cover pan and bring just to a boil, over high heat. Remove from heat and let stand about 15 mins. (Adjust time up or down by 3 mins. for each size larger or smaller.)
2. After 15 min. pour off the hot water and rapidly cool eggs by running them under cold water (or place in ice water) until completely cooled.
3. Combine 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 teaspoon vinegar and specified number of food color drops, listed below, 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.
